The data set contains tables and figures on landuse land cover pattern, distribution of soil properties collected from 251 grid cells with resolution of 1 km by 1 km, and as well as soil suitability analysis of winter crops (Sunflower, Chilli, potato and mustard) in the Sagar Island. Table 1 and figure 1 represent area and percent of total geographical area under different landuse land covers derived from satellite images. Tables 2 and 3 represent variation in soil properties and the estimated soil suitability index values for the winter crops in the Island. Figures 2, 3 and 4 represent percent area under different classes and variation of soil properties (pH, SOC, EC, particle size distribution, macro-nutrients NPK percent distribution) while figure 5 represents variation in soil suitability index across the Island. We also supplied row data on LULC classes (with pixel numbers), measured soil properties, classes of soil properties and in detail the methodology we adopted in estimation of soil quality indices for the four above mentioned different crops in excel sheets.
