Slowly permeable seasonally wet acid loamy and clayey soils (17)

« 16 Soilscapes 18 »

Texture: Loamy and clayey
Drainage: Impeded drainage
Fertility: Low
Land Cover: Grassland with some arable and forestry
Habitats: Seasonally wet pastures and woodlands
Topsoil Carbon: Medium
Mostly Drains To: Stream network
Water Protection Issues: Main risks are associated with overland flow from compacted or poached fields. Organic slurry, dirty water, fertiliser, pathogens and fine sediment can all move in suspension or solution with overland flow or drain water
General Cropping Guidance: Mostly suited to grass production for dairying or beef; some cereal production often for feed. Timeliness of stocking and fieldwork is important, and wet ground conditions should be avoided at the beginning and end of the growing season to prevent damage to soil structure. Land is tile drained and periodic moling or subsoiling will assist drainage
