Corn is the main commodity in the category of food crops other than cassava, sweet potatoes, peanuts and soybeans in the Gorontalo Regency. Based on The Gorontalo Province in Figures 2016, corn production of Gorontalo Regency 2015 was 142863 ton and total harvested area was 26817 hectare. Corn productivity in Gorontalo Regency 2015 was 53.27 kw/ha, the productivity of corn exceeded productivity targets 2016 set by the Ministry of Agriculture 52.62 kw/ha. The purpose of this study is to examine the soil physical properties, soil chemical properties, soil biological properties, and physical land characteristics of corn farmland in the Gorontalo Regency. Data in this study were collected by observation and measurement of the physical land characteristics on the field, soil sampling, and laboratory analysis. Selection of samples was based on the land unit principle. The analysis method used is the quantitative analysis and descriptive analysis. The results showed that the topography, soil conditions, and land conservation system of corn farmland vary widely in the Gorontalo Regency.
