Description of soil BCOEF~~~~~A (O'KEEFE)
|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||No root restricting layer
The growth of plant roots is not restricted by any soil layer.
|Type of root restricting layer||n/a
Water is removed from the soil rapidly in relation to supply. Excess water flows downward if underlying material is pervious. Subsurface flow may occur on steep gradients during heavy rainfall. Soils have low available water storage capacity (2.5-4 cm) within the control section, and are usually coarse textured, or shallow, or both. Water source is precipitation.
|Mode of Deposition||Texture||Chemical properties|
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.
Moderately Coarse (USDA Texture Classes: VFS,LVFS,CSL,SL,FSL,GSL,CBSL,GFSL).
|Medium Acid to Neutral
pH 5.6 - 7.4
