Hardsetting soils in the UK

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

6 Scopus citations


The extent of hardsetting soils in the UK is unknown. A brief survey of relevant literature suggests that there are a significant number of soils in the UK that are hardsetting or potentially hardsetting. One soil in the UK (Big Ground) has been positively identified as hardsetting. A brief summary of the field and laboratory work carried out in this soil and a similar non-hardsetting soil (Plum Orchard) is presented. It is shown that Big Ground exhibits physical behaviour similar to the Australian hardsetting soils. The influence of UK hardsetting soils on plant growth and cultivations is discussed. © 1992.
