Description

Eight soil series (Adams, Berkshire, Buxton, Colbath, Creasey, Hartland, Peru, Winooski) were sampled, each at five locations. The soil was sampled and analyzed on a horizon basis. Characteristics measured were organic carbon, moisture retention, water movement, particle size distribution, volume of coarse fragments, bulk density, soil reaction, exchangeable bases and exchangeable acidity. These data are important in the classification and interpretation of the soil resources of Maine.
