Bahmanyar (2007)conducted a study on rice paddies in Mazandaran and concluded that continuous rice cropping changes moisture regime change from xeric to aquic, soil color from brown to grey, surface layer from Mollic to Acric, soil structure from granular to massive, and soil order from Mollisol to Inceptisol [11].
This study investigates progressive weathering of chlorite, over a three-month period, in an inceptisol following a prescribed fire in Freylinghuysen, New Jersey in 2009.
These soils belong to the soil orders Inceptisol and Entisol, respectively, are both poorly- and well-drained, underlain by permafrost, and commonly form in gravely colluvium.
The former ground surface on which this activity took place is an inceptisol with well-defined A and B horizons (de Biran 2001: 51).
The surface soil consisted of an A-Bw-C-horizon sequence, characterized as an inceptisol, that also suggests limited soil development.
These orders were classified into ordinal categories based on increased fertility and decreased acidity: 0 = histosol and spodosol, 1 = entisol, 2 = inceptisol, 3 = mollisol, and 4 = alfisol.
Soil at the station is classified as Alfisol, Ultisol, Inceptisol, and Entisol orders with deep red color, high in silt to silt loam.
Growth and nutrient concentration of common bean, lowland rice, corn, soybean, and wheat at different soil pH on an inceptisol.
According to US Soil Taxonomy (Soil Survey Staff 1999) the soils are classified as Sulfaquent (mangrove), Spodosol (restinga) and Inceptisol (Atlantic forest).
We hypothesise that the Inceptisol in the study site could have been developed from Andisol following the Entisol-Andisol-Inceptisol sequence as has been reported in the Philippines (Otsuka et al.
in the deeper core, and with the drowning of an Inceptisol nearly 3 m higher at 6,410 B.
