Description of soil BCMSSid~~~A (MESSITER)
|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||Unspecified period
The water table is present in the soil during an unspecified period.
|Root restrictions||Fifth layer
The growth of plant roots is restricted by the fifth layer.
|Type of root restricting layer||Undifferentiated
Water is removed from the soil sufficiently slowly in relation to supply, to keep the soil wet for a significant part of the growing season. Excess water moves slowly downward if precipitation is the major supply. If subsurface water or groundwater, or both, is the main source, the flow rate may vary but the soil remains wet for a significant part of the growing season. Precipitation is the main source if available water storage capacity is high; contribution by subsurface flow or groundwater flow, or both, increases as available water storage capacity decreases. Soils have a wide range in available water supply, texture, and depth, and are gleyed phases of well drained subgroups.
|Mode of Deposition||Texture||Chemical properties|
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).
|Extremely / Strongly Acidic
pH < 5.6
