Barreness and potential fertility of the tepetates (indurated volcanic soils) of Mexico
The 'tepetates' are hardened and denuded horizons of eroded volcanic soils, occurring on the piedmont of the Sierra Nevada, Mexico. This paper deals with the physical and chemical constraints of the tepetates which hinder plant growth.
