Charlton, Sutton, Paxton and Woodbridge soil series were each sampled at five locations. Chemical and physical properties evaluated included particle size distribution, soil reaction, moisture retention, bulk density, coarse fragment volume, exchangeable bases and acidity, saturated hydraulic conductivity, organic carbon and percolation. Properties were evaluated on a horizonal basis whenever possible. Sampling depth was to 40 inches. The samples represent a range of characteristics within each soil series. Each site is not to be considered modal for the particular soil series but was considered to within the range of characteristics of the series at the time of sampling.
