Description of soil BCBUTsv~~~A (BEAUFORT)

General Characteristics
Classification O.R

Orthic Regosol

Profile Agricultural soil profile

The soil has been disturbed by agriculture.

Kind of material Mineral

The soil material is primarily composed of mineral particles.

Water table Never

The water table is not present in the soil at any time.

Root restrictions No root restricting layer

The growth of plant roots is not restricted by any soil layer.

Type of root restricting layer n/a

Not Applicable

Drainage Rapidly drained

Water is removed from the soil rapidly in relation to supply. Excess water flows downward if underlying material is pervious. Subsurface flow may occur on steep gradients during heavy rainfall. Soils have low available water storage capacity (2.5-4 cm) within the control section, and are usually coarse textured, or shallow, or both. Water source is precipitation.


Parent Materials
Mode of Deposition Texture Chemical properties
Fluvial

These sediments generally consist of gravel and sand with a minor fraction of silt and rarely of clay. The gravels are typically rounded and contain interstitial sand.

Very Coarse

Very Coarse (USDA Texture Classes: VCS,CS,S,GS,CBS).

Medium Acid to Neutral

pH 5.6 - 7.4
