This publication provides information and tables for estimating the potential productivity of several soils in the Ozarks. The system, designed by three soils scientists, is based on a productivity index (PI). It uses three properties — the potential available water capacity, bulk density and soil acidity (pH) — to determine the PI. Each of the 11 major Ozarks soil series is outlined in this publication.
