SOILS GEAR FOR SALE by MEMBERS
Soil Texture Kits *Now Available*
Some of the samples are near the boundary between different texture classes. For example, one of the samples is a silt loam that is very near to silty clay loam. Using this known sample you can then determine any unknown sample that is lighter in clay to be silt loam and any that is slightly heavier in clay to be silty clay loam.
The data sheet included with this kit includes the particle size analysis for each sample. The plotted texture triangle shows the ‘location’ of each sample on the texture triangle. A blank triangle, a flow chart, and quiz sheets are included in the kit to help determine texture. The included sand gauge shows the physical differences between silt and very fine, fine, medium, coarse, and very coarse sand. The cost for the kit is $250.00, which includes shipping and handling. The kit is only available for addresses in the United States. Use the Request Form and then the Button below to purchase with a credit card or Pay Pal.
