PINEDA has Low Soil Leaching Capability (The rating of the soil for leaching of pesticides through the soil profile)

It has High SOIL RUNOFF (The rating of the soil for runoff of pesticides from the soil surface).

I'm still trying to track down the pH, but it seems to be ACIDIC, which surprises me - I thought we had alkaline soil. I need to get it tested for sure. But I guess I can do a basic test: Mix soil with baking soda to see if it foams, and then mix soil with vinegar to see if it foams. That'll be a cheap way to test it.


LOCATION PINEDA FL

Established Series Rev. TEC, AGH, GRB 10/2002

PINEDA SERIES

The Pineda series consists of deep and very deep, poorly and very poorly drained, very slowly permeable soils in depressions, low hammocks, poorly defined drainageways, broad low flats, and flood plains. They formed in thick beds of sandy and loamy marine sediments on the lower Coastal Plain. Near the type location, the mean annual temperature is about 72 degrees F., and the mean annual precipitation is about 55 inches. Slopes range from 0 to 2 percent.

TAXONOMIC CLASS: Loamy, siliceous, active, hyperthermic Arenic Glossaqualfs

TYPICAL PEDON: Pineda sandrange. (Colors are for moist soil.)

A
0 to 1 inch; black (10YR 2/1) fine sand; single grained; loose; many fine and medium roots, few coarse roots; moderately acid; clear smooth boundary. (1 to 15 inches thick)

E1 to 5 inches; very pale brown (10YR 7/3) fine sand; single grained; loose; many fine and medium roots; moderately acid; clear wavy boundary. (0 to 22 inches thick)

Bw1
5 to 13 inches; brownish yellow (10YR 6/8) fine sand; single grained; loose; strongly acid; clear wavy boundary.

Bw213 to 24 inches; reddish yellow (7.5YR 6/8) fine sand; single grained; loose; moderately acid; clear wavy boundary. (Combined thickness of the Bw horizon is 6 to 30 inches thick)

E'
24 to 36 inches; light gray (10YR 7/2) fine sand; single grained; loose; few fine distinct brownish yellow (10YR 6/6) masses; moderately acid; abrupt irregular boundary. (0 to 15 inches thick)

B/E36 to 54 inches; light brownish gray (2.5Y 6/2) fine sandy loam (Btg) with 20 percent light gray (10YR 7/2) vertical tongues or intrusions of fine sand (E) 3 to 10 inches in length and 0.5 inch to 2 inches in width; weak fine subangular blocky structure; slightly sticky and slightly plastic; sandy intrusions are single grained and loose; neutral; abrupt irregular boundary. (2 to 40 inches thick)

Cg
54 to 80 inches; light gray (10YR 7/1) fine sand; single grained; loose; slightly acid.

TYPE LOCATION: Lee County, Florida; approximately 2,900 feet north of the intersection of Shands and Baker-Alico Road rock pit and the Florida Power and Light powerline, and about 100 feet west of the powerline. NW 1/4, NW 1/4, SW 1/4, Sec. 6, T. 46 S., R. 26 E.

RANGE IN CHARACTERISTICS: Solum thickness ranges from 40 to 80 inches. Limestone bedrock may occur in some soils below a depth of 40 inches. Combined thickness of the A, E, E', and Bw horizons is 20 to 40 inches. Soil reaction ranges from very strongly acid to neutral in the A, E, E', B/E, and Bw horizons, strongly acid to moderately alkaline in the Btg horizon, and moderately acid to moderately alkaline in the Cg horizon.

The A or Ap horizon has hue of 10YR, value of 2 to 5, and chroma of 1 or 2; or it is neutral with value of 2 to 4. Where the value is 3.5 or less, thickness is less than 10 inches. Texture is sand or fine sand.

The E horizon, where present, has hue of 10YR or 2.5Y, value of 4 to 8, and chroma of 1 to 3; or it is neutral with value of 4 to 8. Redoximorphic features in shades of gray, brown, or yellow range from none to common. Texture is sand or fine sand.

The Bw horizon has hue of 10YR or 7.5YR, value of 4 to 8, and chroma of 3 to 8. Texture is sand or fine sand.

The E' horizon, where present, has hue of 10YR, value of 5 to 8, and chroma of 2 to 4. Chromas of 3 and 4 are due to impurities in sand grains rather than coatings on sand grains. In some pedons, there may be a 1 or 2 inch weakly expressed Bh horizon at the base of the E' horizon. Texture is sand or fine sand.

The B/E horizon has vertical sandy intrusions or tongues greater than 5 cm in length of the overlying albic materials (E). The tongues range from about 5 cm or more in length and width and occupy more than 15 percent of the B/E horizon. The E part of the B/E horizon has colors and textures similar to the E and E' horizons. The Btg part of the B/E horizon has hue of 10YR to 5BG, value of 4 to 7, and chroma of 1 or 2; or it is neutral with value of 4 to 7. Redoximorphic features in shades of yellow or brown range from none to common. Clay content averages between 15 and 25 percent. Texture is sandy loam, fine sandy loam, or sandy clay loam.

The Btg horizon, where present, has colors and textures similar to that of the Btg part of the B/E horizon.

The BC horizon, where present, has colors similar to the Btg and B/E horizons. Texture is sandy loam, fine sandy loam, or sandy clay loam.

The Cg horizon has hue of 10YR to 5GY, value of 5 to 8, and chroma of 1 or 2; or it is neutral with value of 5 to 8. Texture is sand, fine sand, loamy sand, sandy loam, or sandy clay loam. In some pedons, it is sand mixed with shell fragments.

COMPETING SERIES: These include Riviera and Tequesta series in the same family. The poorly drained Riviera soils are on similar positions but do not have high chroma in their Bw horizons. The very poorly drained Tequesta soils are on similar to slightly lower positions and have histic epipedons.

GEOGRAPHIC SETTING: Pineda soils are in depressions, low hammocks, poorly defined drainageways, broad low flats, and flood plains of the lower Coastal Plain. They formed in beds of loamy and sandy marine sediments. The climate is humid semitropical. Slopes are less than 2 percent. The average annual air temperature ranges from 70 to 74 degrees F., and the average annual precipitation ranges from 50 to 60 inches.

GEOGRAPHICALLY ASSOCIATED SOILS: These include the Anclote, Boca, EauGallie, Felda, Floridana, Hallandale, Holopaw, Immokalee, Malabar, Manatee, Myakka, Oldsmar, Parkwood, Pompano, Riviera, Wabasso, and Winder series. Anclote, Floridana, and Manatee soils are on similar to slightly lower positions, are very poorly drained, and have mollic epipedons. Boca and Hallandale soils are on similar positions, but Boca soils are moderately deep to limestone bedrock and Hallandale soils are shallow to limestone bedrock. EauGallie, Immokalee, Myakka, Oldsmar, and Wabasso soils are on similar to lower positions but have spodic horizons. Felda, Riviera, and Winder soils are on similar positions but lack Bw horizons. In addition, Winder soils have a sandy epipedon less than 20 inches thick. Holopaw and Malabar soils are on similar to lower positions and have Btg horizons 40 to 80 inches deep. The poorly drained Parkwood soils are on similar to slightly lower positions and have calcareous Bt horizons. The very poorly drained Pompano soils are sandy throughout.

DRAINAGE AND PERMEABILITY: Poorly or very poorly drained; very slow permeability.

USE AND VEGETATION: Areas of Pineda soils that are drained are used for citrus, truck crops, and tame pasture. In their undrained state, these soils are used for range. Natural vegetation consists of:

slash pine, cypress, myrtle, cabbage palm, blue maidencane, chalky bluestem, bluepoint panicum, sedges, pineland threeawn, and sand cordgrass.

DISTRIBUTION AND EXTENT: Peninsular Florida. The series is of moderate extent.

MLRA OFFICE RESPONSIBLE: Auburn, Alabama.

SERIES ESTABLISHED: Brevard County, Florida; 1970.

REMARKS: The water table is within depths of 12 inches for 1 to 6 months. In some areas the soil is flooded from 7 days to 6 months. Depressions are ponded for periods of 3 to 6 months in most years.

Diagnostic horizons and features recognized in this pedon are:

Aquic moisture regime.

Arenic properties-- a sandy epipedon that is 36 inches thick. (A, E, Bw1, Bw2, E' horizons).

Albic horizonsthe zones from 1 to 5 inches and from 24 to 36 inches (E, E' horizons).

Argillic horizon
the zone from about 36 to 54 inches (B/E horizon).

Glossic horizon - the zone from about 36 to 54 inches.
