    Soil test reports vary from laboratory to laboratory; however, they all report key results of pH, lime test index (LTI) or buffer pH, phosphorous, and potassium. These results are used to develop fertilizer recommendations. Other useful measures on the report, such as cation exchange capacity (CEC), organic matter, and base saturation, further define soil factors related to nutrient. Regulations. In Ohio, Local Health Districts in conjunction with the state Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) assumes responsibility for regulating the licensing and use of septic systems. The Ohio EPA can issue two types of permits: permits for residential use, and NPDES permits, which are issued for industrial and municipal sewage discharge systems.

    South of the glacial boundary, in southeast Ohio, the soils are much older and have been formed from the eroded shales and sandstones of the Appalachian Plateaus. The soils are thin and, because of the rough terrain, erosion has been severe, and much of the .

Soil Conditions Soils most suitable for a vegetative cover should have a high water storage capacity. The soil should be a high mix- ture of clays and silts (e.g., fine-grain soils). Soils with rapid drainage are to be avoided, although a carefully designed and maintained cover may include a coarser-grained ma- terial.

Published Soil Surveys for Ohio. Current, official soil survey information is on the Web Soil Survey. The Web Soil Survey allows you to create custom reports by selecting a specific area of interest. In the table below, clicking on a survey area that is listed as "current" takes you to the Web Soil Survey.

THE ORIGIN OF OHIO SOILS GUY W. CONREY, Ohio Agricultural Experiment Station and Ohio State University The soils of any region owe their character primarily to the con-ditions of environment under which they have developed.

Just as in the biological world, also in rock weathering and in soil development, the key note is adaptation to environment. Books shelved as soil: Teaming with Microbes: A Gardener's Guide to the Soil Food Web by Jeff Lowenfels, Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations by David R.

The Field Book for Describing and Sampling Soils, version (Schoeneberger, Wysocki, Benham, and Soil Survey Staff, ) is a 4" x 7" spiral-bound publication printed on waterproof tabs mark Field Book chapters and sections for quick, easy reference.

Early chapters address Site Description, Soil Profile/Pedon Description, and Geomorphology. Soil survey update projects were completed in these seven counties plus two others before the Ohio Soil Inventory Board adopted a more efficient way for soil survey update projects to be conducted in the state.

The Statewide Digital Soils Information Project, completed inwas a major step toward increasing the efficiency at which Ohio's. Soil pH is an important consideration when producing any crop, and soil pH should be the first soil consideration when attempting to grow a plant.

Soil pH affects soil microbial activity and populations, many soil chemical reactions, and nutrient availability; thus it is an important soil property to consider for maximum productivity.

The type of soil your home sits on plays a huge role in the risk of foundation damage you have. Sand and sandy loam soils allow water to pass through, making them more stable and less likely to expand and cause foundation problems. USDA soil taxonomy (ST) developed by United States Department of Agriculture and the National Cooperative Soil Survey provides an elaborate classification of soil types according to several parameters (most commonly their properties) and in several levels: Order, Suborder, Great Group, Subgroup, Family, and classification was originally developed by Guy Donald Smith.

Project Methods A laboratory will be maintained in order to provide soil characterization data which are an essential ingredient for the completion of a high quality soil survey of the entire state. The genesis of Ohio soils will be examined in field and laboratory studies by ordination of soil forming factors or with dynamic equilibrium models oriented toward process - response mechanisms.

derived primarily from the soil. Soil also provides a place to store water and gives support for plant roots. The term, soil profile, is used to describe a vertical cross-section of the soil from its surface down into the parent rock or earth materials from which the soil was formed.

Soil scientists have divided the soil. clay is a fine-grained soil, or the fine-grained portion of a soil, with a plasticity index greater than 4 and the plot of plasticity index versus liquid limit falls on or above the "A"-line (figurelater in this chapter).
