Forestry Extension Publication 2822, “Forest Soils of Mississippi”

“Landowners interested in making the most of their forest need a basic understanding of the soils.  Forest productivity and wildlife habitat begin with the quality of the soil.”

There is an immense amount of information about Mississippi soils packed into this 6-page publication; from their birth and influencing factors, to how a soil profile is described, the physical and chemical properties involved, major soil resource areas of the State, and proper soil management techniques. Lots of sugar for a dime in this publication, so check it out.
