Description of soil BCGNZ~~~~~A (GUNNIZA)
|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|
Used where there is evidence that the lacustrine materials were deposited in contact with glacial ice. One of the following characteristics must be present:
Coarse Skeletal (USDA Texture Classes: VGS, VGLS).
|Extremely / Strongly Acidic
pH < 5.6
Morainal material (till) deposited by glacial ice: a mixture of boulders, sand, silt, and clay.
Moderately Coarse (USDA Texture Classes: VFS,LVFS,CSL,SL,FSL,GSL,CBSL,GFSL).
|Medium Acid to Neutral
pH 5.6 - 7.4
