Description of soil BCPHP~~~~~N (PHILLIPA)
|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.
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 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.
|Mode of Deposition||Texture||Chemical properties|
These sediments generally consist of gravel and sand with a minor fraction of silt and rarely of clay. The gravels are typically rounded and contain interstitial sand.
Coarse (USDA Texture Classes: FS,LCS,LS,LFS,GLS,CBLS).
Undifferentiated acidity and/or calcareousness
