A Vertisol, or Vertosol, is a soil type in which there is a high content of expansive clay minerals, many of them known as montmorillonite, that form deep cracks in drier seasons or a phenomenon known as argillipedoturbation, alternate shrinking and swelling causes self-ploughing, where the soil material consistently mixes itself, causing some Vertisols to have an extremely deep A.

Management of vertisols in sub-Saharan Africa: proceedings of a conference held at ILCA, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 31 August-4 September [S C Jutzi; International Livestock Centre for Africa.;].

Vertisols generally have gentle slopes, although a few slope strongly. They develop commonly in large pedons and polypedons. The natural vegetation is a function of the soil climate.

Most Vertisols are well suited for mechanized farming if there is plenty of rainfall or irrigation water and if suitable management practices are followed. This book provides a very worthwhile compilation of information about the Vertisol order generally supported by a good review of recent literature.

For researchers studying specific aspects of Vertisols and their management, the book provides a comprehensive overview of the state of knowledge about this soil order. Vertisols are characterized by a content of 30 percent or more by mass of clay-size particles throughout the upper half-metre ( feet) of the soil profile, by centimetre-size (inch) cracks open to the land surface during the dry season, and by distinct evidence of strong vertical mixing of the soil particles through shrinking and swelling processes accompanying drying and rewetting periods.

Vertisols are generally rich in lime (Srivastava et al ). The low amount of li me in. P 1 results from that there are an abundant number of igneous rocks particularly in the basin of.

Vertisol, one of the 30 soil groups in the classification system of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).Vertisols are characterized by a clay-size-particle content of 30 percent or more by mass in all horizons (layers) of the upper half-metre of the soil profile, by cracks at least 1 cm ( inch) wide extending downward from the land surface, and by evidence of strong vertical mixing.Free 2-day shipping.

Buy Developments in Soil Science, Volume Vertisols and Technologies for Their Management, Volume 24 (Hardcover) at Vertisols (from Latin verto, "turn") are clay-rich soils that shrink and swell with changes in moisture dry periods, the soil volume shrinks and deep wide cracks form.

The soil volume then expands as it wets up. This shrink/swell action creates serious engineering problems and generally prevents formation of distinct, well-developed horizons in these soils.
