SL74 Duval County: Soil Ratings for Selecting Pesticides 1 G.W. Hurt and T.A. Obreza2 Resource soil scientists with the USDA Natural NOTE: The user may discover that one or more Resources Conservation Service have rated the soils map unit names in Table 1 have been updated from that are delineated by map units in the Duval County names given in the legend of the soil survey report Soil Survey Report (see references) for their potential (see references). For example, a soil map unit may be for leaching and runoff of pesticides. The rating listed in the survey report with a single soil series criteria are given in a companion publication name, whereas the same soil map unit is shown as (Circular 959) entitled "Soil Ratings for Selecting comprising two or more soil series in the list in Table Pesticides for Water Quality Goals."

SEQ NUM = Sequence Number, indicating a particular soil name among one or more names constituting a map unit name. MUSYM = Map Unit Symbol from the soil map and legend in the Soil Survey of Duval County, Florida. Note that if a MUSYM appears more than once in this list it signifies that two or more soils are co-dominant in that map unit, and each such soil is rated separately here. SOIL NAME = Name of soil or other landscape component (urban land, made land, borrow pits, spoil banks, etc.). SOIL LEACH = The rating of the soil for leaching of pesticides through the soil profile. SOIL RUNOFF = The rating of the soil for runoff of pesticides from the soil surface. NOTE: See "Soil Ratings for Selecting Pesticides for Water Quality Goals" (IFAS Extension Circular 959) for explanations of the criteria used to develop soil ratings presented in the right-hand four columns of this list.
