Description of soil BCKOB~~~~~A (KOBES CREEK)

General Characteristics
Classification BR.GL

Brunisolic Gray Luvisol

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 Fifth layer

The growth of plant roots is restricted by the fifth layer.

Type of root restricting layer Compact Till

Compact (Basal) Till

Drainage Well drained

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.


Parent Materials
Mode of Deposition Texture Chemical properties
Uppermost Glaciofluvial

Material moved by glaciers and subsequently sorted and deposited by streams flowing from the melting ice. The deposits are stratified and may occur in the form of outwash plains, deltas, kames eskers, and kame terraces. See also glacial drift and till.

Medium

Medium (USDA Texture Classes: VFSL,L,SIL,SI,GL,GSIL).

Extremely / Strongly Acidic

pH < 5.6

Below Till (Morainal)

Morainal material (till) deposited by glacial ice: a mixture of boulders, sand, silt, and clay.

Fine

Fine (USDA Texture Classes: SC,SIC,C,GSIC).

Undifferentiated

Undifferentiated acidity and/or calcareousness
