Description of soil BCMEXsli~~N (MEXICANA)
|Profile||Native soil profile
The soil is in native condition (undisturbed by agriculture).
|Kind of material||Mineral
The soil material is primarily composed of mineral particles.
|Water table||Non growing season
The water table is present in the soil during the non growing season.
|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||Moderately well drained
Water is removed from the soil somewhat slowly in relation to supply. Excess water is removed somewhat slowly due to low perviousness, shallow water table, lack of gradient, or some combination of these. Soils have intermediate to high water storage capacity (5-6 cm) within the control section and are usually medium to fined textured. Precipitation is the dominant water source in medium to fine textured soils; precipitation and significant additions by subsurface flow are necessary in coarse textured soils.
|Mode of Deposition||Texture||Chemical properties|
Morainal material (till) deposited by glacial ice: a mixture of boulders, sand, silt, and clay.
Medium Skeletal (USDA Texture Classes: VGSL, VGL).
|Extremely / Strongly Acidic
pH < 5.6
