by Mace G. Bauer, William S. Castle, Brian J. Boman, Thomas A. Obreza
The Field Guide to Soil Identification for Florida’s Citrus-Growing Regions is a user-friendly, practical field guide for the classification and identification of soils in central and southern Florida. In a manner that is accessible to readers regardless of their knowledge of soil science, the authors present the physical and chemical characteristics of various Florida soils and how they pertain to citrus production and management decisions. Among the topics covered are: soil orders and citrus production; terms and concepts of soil identification; soil characteristics and citrus production; and field determination of soil physical properties.
Making this a functional guide for working in the field are 74 color photographs of soil types, 5 weatherproof laminated soil identification keys, and an original 10YR Munsell Soil Identification chart. All materials are provided in a three-ring binder for ease of use.
