Lab Pedon #:S07MA023003
Description Date: 8/1/2007
Print Date: 9/11/2007
Describer: Al Averill, Bill Taylor, and Rob Tunstead
Site Notes: Text: Nine horizon were bulk sampled of the ten described. The Bh and Bhs horizons were combined in one bulk sampling bag.
Pedon Notes: Text: This pedon was sampled to set up a new soil series which will probably be named Rainberry. Berryland soils are currently mapped within LRR R and MLRA's 149A, 153C, and 153D. These soils were mapped within 149B in glacial deposits which are outside of the allowable range. Berryland soils occur on coastal plains and have never be glaciated.
