Chemical and Mineralogical Characterization and Comparison of Hagerstown and Maury Soil Series1

  1. T. B. Hutcheson2



Maury and Hagerstown soil series have largely been differentiated in central Kentucky on the basis of phosphate level as determined by chemical quick test in the field. Slight color differences have been noted, but considerable overlap of this criterion exists. Consequently, field differentiation of these two series without chemical testing is most difficult. Chemical and mineralogical data obtained for three Maury and two Hagerstown profiles point up the similarity between the two series as well as illustrate about as much range in many properties within the individual series as between them. These data suggest that as the soils occur in central Kentucky, differentiation at the series level is not justified.
