« 6 Soilscapes 8 »

Texture: Loamy
Drainage: Freely draining
Fertility: High
Land Cover: Arable and grassland
Habitats: Base-rich pastures and deciduous woodlands
Topsoil Carbon: Low
Mostly Drains To: Groundwater
Water Protection Issues: Groundwater contamination with nitrate; siltation and nutrient enrichment of streams from soil erosion on certain of these soils
General Cropping Guidance: Suitable for spring and autumn sown crops and grassland. Shortage of soil moisture most likely limiting factor to yields especially where stony or shallow
