A good quality top soil is important for optimum plant growth in any land-use type. The landscape in Karang Sidemen Village, located at the bottom of Rinjani volcano, consists of a mosaic of management regimes. This study assessed the soil profile and properties of six management regimes under different governing bodies, namely, secondary forest, monoculture stand, agroforestry in KHDTK Rarung, agroforestry in community forest, banana-dominant landscape in Hortipark Tastura, and mixed planted forest. Soil profile and pH data were collected from a two-dimensional soil wall (100 cm depth). Soil samples from 30 cm depth of each forest were analyzed for the soil properties (soil organic carbon, bulkdensity, soil water content, litter biomass). The results showed that the vertical pH in the soil profile is generally increasing or steady from top to bottom except for the secondary forest. The pH value ranged from 5.0 to 7. The soil colors are mostly in the yellow-red category. The soil in the six management regimes is still ideal for plant growth indicated by its low bulk density and ideal pH range for plant growth. Soil organic carbon is highest in the secondary forest which corresponds to 7.5YR 3/1 and lowest in the monoculture stand (10YR 2/2). Soil water content is highest in the secondary forest and lowest in the agroforestry in KHDTK Rarung. The litter biomass in the secondary forest is two times higher than in agroforestry sites and four times higher than in banana-dominant landscape, monoculture stand and mixed planted forest.
