    Soil Adaptability

    Rating Soil Category
    VG
    Light Soils

    LOW CEC (<10); OM <1.5%; low water-holding capacity; non-irrigated sand; marginal productivity; drought prone.

    E
    Medium Soils

    CEC 11–18; OM 1.5-3.5%; well-drained; silt loam; high productivity.

    E
    Heavy Soils

    High CEC (>18); OM >3.5%; poorly-drained; high clay content; gumbo; muck.

    E
    Poorly-Drained Soils

    Soils that have the potential to remain saturated for prolonged periods; side hill seeps; gumbo muck.
