Description of soil BCMMY~~~~~N (MEMEKAY)
|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||Sixth layer
The growth of plant roots is restricted by the sixth layer.
|Type of root restricting layer||Undifferentiated
|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|
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.
Moderately Fine (USDA Texture Classes: SCL,FSCL,VFSCL,CL,SICL,GSCL,GL,CBCL).
|Medium Acid to Neutral
pH 5.6 - 7.4
