In recognition of the importance of soil in a crop and forest production program, the Maine Agricultural Experiment Station initiated a research project in 1962 to determine the chemical properties of seven important agricultural soil series found in the state (Bangor, Caribou, Charlton, Conant, Buxton, Plaisted, Thorndike). The ultimate goal of the research was to relate the chemical properties of the soil series to the most appropriate fertility practices for their wise economic use.
