Assessing the Texture of your Soils
· PDF 檔案When a texture class is given a name, the dominant soil particle or its major texture class comes last. For example, a sandy loam (SL) is a loam with a high sand content. A loamy sand (LS) is a sand which is approaching the texture of a loam, but feels more like a
The soil texture or textural class, as described here, is the same as the soil texture mentioned in Soils – Part 1: The Origin and Development of Soil. A Holdrege silt loam, for example, describes the texture of the surface horizon.

Soil texture (such as loam, sandy loam or clay) refers to the proportion of sand, silt and clay sized particles that make up the mineral fraction of the soil. For example, light soil refers to a soil high in sand relative to clay, while heavy soils are made up largely of clay.

soiltexture: The Soil Texture Wizard
Soil texture data and soil texture classifications systems are traditionally visualised (plotted) on ternary diagrams (called texture plots, texture diagrams or texture triangles). soiltexture currently implements 17 soil texture classification systems from all around the world.
HYDROMETER ANALYSIS OF SOIL – WHAT, WHY & …
· In case of fine grained soil, sieve analysis test does not give reliable test result. This because a fine grained soil consist of different sizes of particles starting from 0.075 mm to 0.0002 mm. and it is not practicable to design sieve having so smaller screen size.

Soil texture is typically determine by sedimentation methods — using a pipette or a hydrometer — , which provide the relative proportion of soil mineral particles, called soil particle size separates: sand (2.0–0.05 mm), silt (0.05–0.002 mm) and clay (<0.002 mm).
