Lime-rich loamy and clayey soils with impeded drainage (9)

« 8 Soilscapes 10 »

Texture: Clayey, some loamy
Drainage: Slightly impeded drainage
Fertility: High
Land Cover: Arable some grassland
Habitats: Base-rich pastures and classic chalky boulder clay ancient woodlands; some wetter areas and lime-rich flush vegetation
Topsoil Carbon: Low
Mostly Drains To: Stream network
Water Protection Issues: Land is drained and nitrate vulnerable; potential for rapid pollutant transport; surface capping can trigger sheet erosion of fine sediment to stream network
General Cropping Guidance: Suited to autumn sown crops and grass but shortage of soil moisture can restrict yield, and timeliness with field work is important to avoid structural damage particularly in spring
