Abstract

The purpose of this study is to provide a chemical, physical and mineralogical characterization of the Moody, Nora, and Crofton soils occurring on the Northeast Nebraska Experiment Station. Data obtained during the course of this study has made it possible to advance a hypothesis concerning the genesis of these soils. It is anticipated that an understanding of the characteristics and genesis of these soils will be of value in the development and subsequent interpretation of field research conducted at this station.

Moody, Nora, and Crofton soils are agriculturally important in Northeast Nebraska and in adjacent parts of South Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota. A characterization of these soils on the Northeast Nebraska Experiment Station may also aid in understanding similar soils in a widespread surrounding area.
