Laterite soils in India are generally red in color (Statement 1) due to the presence of iron oxide. However, they are not necessarily rich in nitrogen and potash (Statement 2). They are well-developed in Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh (Statement 3) is incorrect as laterite soils are typically found in the coastal regions of India. Tapioca and cashew nuts do grow well on laterite soils (Statement 4).
