    A soil horizon is a layer parallel to the soil surface whose physical, chemical and biological characteristics differ from the layers above and beneath. Horizons are defined in many cases by obvious physical features, mainly colour and texture. These may be described both in absolute terms (particle size distribution for texture, for instance) and in terms relative to the surrounding material. Agricultural Handbook , Soil Taxonomy: A Basic System of Soil Classification for Making and Interpreting Soil Surveys, , USDA, NRCS, and all amendments. Soil Taxonomy provides the common base for the organization of knowledge about soils and a universal means to communicate this knowledge. See Appendix D for Web Address.

    SOIL is the collection of dynamic natural bodies, at or near the earth's surface, made up of earthy materials and supports or is capable of supporting plant growth. For the purpose of soil survey investigations, the soil is usually described to a depth of 80 inches, or to hard bedrock, which ever comes first. --Derived from Soil Taxonomy. USDA soil taxonomy (ST) developed by United States Department of Agriculture and the National Cooperative Soil Survey provides an elaborate classification of soil types according to several parameters (most commonly their properties) and in several levels: Order, Suborder, Great Group, Subgroup, Family, and classification was originally developed by Guy Donald Smith, .

      Book Description. The Handbook of Cucurbits: Growth, Cultural Practices, and Physiology contains information on cultural practices, nutrition, and physiological processes of cucurbits under both normal and stressful conditions. It presents the history and importance of cucurbit crop production as well as exhaustive information on growth responses of cucurbits to various . Further reading about soil types. Gelisols are soils that are permanently frozen (contain “permafrost”) or contain evidence of permafrost near the soil surface. Gelisols are found in the Arctic and Antarctic, as well as at extremely high elevations. Permafrost influences land use through its effect on the downward movement of water and freeze-thaw activity (cryoturbation) such as frost heaves.

Excerpt from Keys to Soil Taxonomy Foreword by David W. Smith, Social Science Division Director, Natural Resources Conservation Service. This publication, Keys to Soil Taxonomy, Twelfth Edition,coincides with the 20th World Congress of Soil Science, to be held on Jeju Island, Korea in June The Keys to Soil Taxonomy serves two purposes.

It provides the taxonomic keys necessary. A soil map unit is a collection of areas on the landscape having properties similar to the series used to name the map unit. In other words, a soil series is a specific taxonomic grouping while a map unit is a more flexible concept based on that taxonomic grouping.

For example, a map unit named ‘Becket fine sandy loam, 3 to 8.

(1) Improve soil landscape description with a standard, single source landform and geologic glossary. (2) Enhance geomorphic content and clarity of soil map unit descriptions by use of accurate, defined terms. (3) Establish consistent geomorphic term usage in soil science and the National Cooperative Soil.
