A well recognizable Calcaric Cambisol (Rendollic Eutrochrept) profile with the horizon sequence A-ABw-Bw-BC-C had already developed from the Calcaric Regosol in the second and third decades.
In comparison, Kurosols were classified as six WRB RSGs--Aerisols, Lixisols, Planosols, Luvisols, Solonetz, and a Regosol.
Within the Northern Rivers they include the Leptosols, Fluvisols, Arenosols, and Regosols.
Leptosols and Regosols always presented lower values of [[theta].
12%), Leptosols, and Regosols than in Calcisols, Gleysols, and Vertisols (s.
In general the brown forest soils and deeper regosols would have been suitable for growing wheat and barley.
Given the relative proportions of the soils, there are significantly fewer castles then expected on the podzolics and northern lithosols, and far more than expected on the forest, regosols, alluvium and southern lithosols.
Accordingly, the unique EPL for Histosols and Regosols (30 and 10 cm) and SC depth (50 and 25 cm) were considered to be conventional.
They are lowest in eroded soils, Regosols, and Podzols, and highest in Luvisols and deluvial soils.
When tested within soil types, most soil properties were significantly higher in plateau land than in the other landforms in Chernozems and Regosols soils and were significantly higher in plateau and sloping lands in Cambisols (Table 4).
Averaged across the land-use types and landforms, Chernozems had significantly lower pH values and CECs, but higher SOC and TN contents than Regosols.
The prevailing soil types in the study area are Dystric Regosols and, more inland, Ortic Podzols associated with Dystric Cambisols (DGA 1978).
