Map Unit: 25 CROCKETT FINE SANDY LOAM, 1 TO 5 PERCENT SLOPES
Description Category: PHG
8A - TIGHT LOAMY UPLAND - Moderately deep to very deep uplands with loamy surfaces and dense subsoils; slopes 0 to 5 percent; low natural fertility; seasonally wet or droughty; medium water holding capacity but poor to fair plant-soil-moisture relationship; medium to high production potential.
Description Category: SOI
The crockett series consists of deep, moderately well drained, very slowly permeable, nearly level to strongly sloping soils of uplands. The soil formed in alkaline marine clays interbedded with loamy material. Typically, the surface layer is dark brown fine sandy loam about 8 inches thick. Clay subsoil extends to about 57 inches and is mottled reddish and brownish in the upper part and olive, yellow, brown and gray in the lower part. Material below is mottled yellow and brown loam and contains carbonate masses.
