Book review by Michael Rich, EKU Associate Professor and KWOA Board Member This is the book I wish I had read when I bought my first woodland acreage in Kentucky. The author gives a detailed description of the differences between the subregions of the Bluegrass and the reasons for the various vegetation patterns found in these subregions.

Soils of the Nashville Basin by Max J. Edwards Download PDF EPUB FB2

Soils are generally thin, with frequent outcrops of Ordovician limestone. The soils are redder and lower in phosphorus than those of either the Inner Bluegrass or the Outer Nashville Basin., and the generally shallow soils are redder and lower in phosphorus. The karst terrain is dissected by gentle streams.

Shale and limestone outliers of Devonian-Mississippian periods cap the many small hills around the edge of this MLRA. Phosphates are the major resource of the Central Basin, but other products include crushed limestone and Zinc (Miller, ). Soils A summary of the soil series in this MLRA are given in Table 1.

STATSGO soils are depicted in Fig. The Inner Basin of the flattest terrain and most limestone-derived soil chemistry is located to the south and east of Nashville, primarily in the counties of Maury, Rutherford, Coffee, and Bedford.

Here also are seen the horse farms somewhat reminiscent of the Kentucky Bluegrass region. The soils of the Bluegrass and Nashville Basin are alfisols (alfi=aluminum and iron, sol=soil) are rich, well-developed soils that were created in part by hardwood forests.

Alfisols are richer than the ultisols of the Appalachian forests. Formed over limestone, they are rich in phosphorus.

The Bradyville series consists of deep, well drained soils on uplands.

These soils formed in residuum of limestone or in a thin silty mantle and the underlying clayey residuum of limestone. Slopes range from 0. GEOGRAPHIC SETTING: The Byler soils are on nearly level to undulating stream terraces of the Nashville Basin and adjacent drainage systems.

Farm yields are generally lower in the Cumberland Plateau, where poor eroded soils, steep slopes, and lack of machinery and transportation have hampered agricultural development.

These soils have a thermic temperature regime, an udic moisture regime, and a clayey subsoil. These soils have a thermic temperature regime, an udic moisture regime, and a clayey subsoil. As a rule they are excellent honey plants on the glacial soils of the northern United States.

Other extensive areas underlaid by limestone are the Great Appalachian Valley, the Nashville Basin of Tennessee, the Blue Grass Region of Kentucky, and the Ozark Uplands. It is estimated that these limestone areas compr, acres.

The Virginia Solite Quarry is situated in the middle of the basin where it straddles the North Carolina- Virginia state line at Cascade, VA.

4, 9, and 10). The Nashville Basin has not been subdivided in this way so a comparison on this basis cannot be made. The oldest rocks exposed in the Nashville Basin are as old as, or older than, those of the Inner Blue Grass, and Mississippian rocks form the rims of both basins.

The char-acters of the rocks of the.Light brown in color, these soils erode easily, require especially careful management, and are characteristically poor in organic matter and nutrients.

The most productive podzols occur in the Nashville Basin, where the underlying rock, a phosphatic limestone, contributes unusually high amounts of phosphorus to the soil.
