Description of soil BCBVT~~~~~A (BEAVERTAIL)
|Profile||Agricultural soil profile
The soil has been disturbed by agriculture.
|Kind of material||Mineral
The soil material is primarily composed of mineral particles.
The water table is not present in the soil at any time.
|Root restrictions||Fifth layer
The growth of plant roots is restricted by the fifth layer.
|Type of root restricting layer||Compact Till
Compact (Basal) Till
Water is removed from the soil readily but not rapidly. Excess water flows downward readily into underlying pervious material or laterally as subsurface flow. Soils have intermediate available water storage capacity (4-5 cm) within the control section, and are generally intermediate in texture and depth. Water source is precipitation. On slopes subsurface flow may occur for short durations, but additions are equaled by losses.
|Mode of Deposition||Texture||Chemical properties|
Unconsolidated deposits of clay, silt, sand, or gravel that are well to moderately well sorted and well to moderately well stratified (in some places containing shells). The deposits have settled from suspension in salt or brackish water bodies or have accumulated at their margins through shoreline processes such as wave action and longshore drift. Nonfossiliferous deposits may be judged marine if they are located in an area that may reasonably be considered to have contained salt water at the time the deposits were formed.
Coarse (USDA Texture Classes: FS,LCS,LS,LFS,GLS,CBLS).
|Extremely / Strongly Acidic
pH < 5.6
Morainal material (till) deposited by glacial ice: a mixture of boulders, sand, silt, and clay.
Medium (USDA Texture Classes: VFSL,L,SIL,SI,GL,GSIL).
Undifferentiated acidity and/or calcareousness
