A soil survey and land use analysis was carried out around the northern part of Janguza along Kano – Gwarzo road. A pH meter was used to analyze the soil samples from the study area, a hydrometer method was used to determine the particle size distributions of the soil samples, and also the calculation of particle size was done to determine the percentage of clay, sand and silt in the samples collected. It was discovered that all the soil samples from the study area were acidic, it was also discovered from the result of particle size calculations of clay, silt and sand that soil sample D1 recorded the highest percentage of clay with (11.44%), soil sample A1 recorded the highest percentage of silt with (30%) and soil sample B2 recorded the highest percentage of sand with (92.56%), and it was also discovered that loamy sand soil is the most dominant type of soil at the study area. The research recommend that for proper land management practices at the study area, there is need for the creation of contour ridges and strict measures should be put in place in order to stop the excavation of sand at the study area.
