Range from unsuitable to poorly suitable for most fruit & vegetable crops Their suitability is poor for most horticultural crops; artificial drainage usually necessary. 3 Main limitation is high clay content. Fair to good suitability for canola, soybeans and white beans. Vary 2D 2D 3WD Flooding is the greatest limitation for agricultural uses Widely used for growing common field crops With artificial drainage they have fair to good suitability for select fruit and vegetable crops. Susceptible to soil compaction and erosion should Used for common field crops such as forages, small grains and corn. Usually considered problem soils because of poor drainage and high clay content. 12
