Study of some Cuban soils, particularly ferrallitic soils. 2. Typic red ferrallitic soils in the plains of western and central Cuba



Cahiers ORSTOM Pedologie 19(3): 205-219



Typic red ferrallitic soils occur in the central and western plains of Cuba. They have developed on hard mid-Miocene limestone. The soils are two to four meters deep. Morphological differentiation is moderate. Soil colour is red to dark red throughout the profile. Clay content is high; structure is granular or weakly to moderately blocky; saturation is high (60 to 90%), with an exchangeable calcium content of 6 to 12 me/100 g and a very moderately acid pH (6 to 7).
