Abstract

Northern Stone County soils formed from and overlie Burlington and Elsey-Reeds Spring geologic formations. The soils in the study area are Alfisols, Ultisols and Inceptisols. These soils were studies to determine the depth, distribution and the correlation of percent clay, percent organic matter, extractable calcium and pH with percent aluminum saturation for planning purposes. Most of the soils studies had a moderate to very high potential for aluminum toxicity. There was little consistent correlation between percent clay content, percent organic matter, extractable calcium and pH with percent aluminum saturation. Planning recommendations are given based on the depths of the aluminum toxicity potentials.
