 Soil Type and Fertility

A large portion of the Municipality of Ibaan has soil of the clay loam type, dark-brown in color. The soil tends to bake and crack when dry and uncultivated but it crumbles easily under optimum moisture. Barangay Salaban I & II, Malainin, Lapu-lapu, Sto. Nino and Coliat have Ibaan loam soil which is brown and slightly friable and granular form while Barangay Balanga and Bungahan have a gravelly phase of Ibaan Loam.
