Soils of the Horsham Map Sheet

The report: Soil Associations of Horsham Map sheet No. 7324' was prepared in 1977 by Nabil Badawy from the former Department of Agriculture. This report aimed to provide research and advisory staff with basic information for the location and identification of soils with known or suspected agronomic problems in the surveyed area. It contains a description of associated groups of soils, their distribution in the area and the landscape soil relationships. Soils were described according to the now outdated Northcote Factual Key.

To view the information PDF requires the use of a PDF reader. This can be installed for free from the Adobe website (external link).
