Smith, Henry W. and Rhoades, H.F. (1945) Physical and chemical properties of soil profiles of the Burchard and Steinauer series (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 139)
The purpose of this bulletin is to report an investigation of the soils mapped as types of the Burchard and Steinauer series. Burchard soils are described as nearly mature Prairie soils, and Steinauer soils as Lithosols, by the Division of Soil Survey. The C horizons of soils of both series consist of calcareous glacial drift. A part of the conclusions drawn from the investigation of these soils is based upon observations made in the field in southeastern Nebraska, the remainder upon laboratory data for samples taken by horizons from nine profiles.
