Inarajan Variant

From Soil Testing

Inarajan Variant

 

Soil Classification: Very-fine, mixed, nonacid, isohyperthermic Tropic Fluvaquents.

Description:
The Inarajan Variant consists of very deep, poorly drained, slowly permeable soils on valley bottoms and coastal plains. These soils formed in alluvium. Depth to bedrock is 160 centimeters or more. Soil texture of top horizon is clay, mucky clay, or silty clay. Content of clay is 50 to 70 percent. The Inarajan Variant soil covers approximately 0.3 percent of Guam's total land area.

Suitability: This soil series is used as watershed and wildlife habitat. It is not suited to subsistence or commercial farming, grazing, or homesite or recreational development. The main limitation is the permanent high water table. The use of this soil series as wildlife habitat and watershed can be enhanced by maintaining the native vegetation.
