Figure 7. Soil profile to a depth of 42” in the middle of highlighter green to yellowing (senescence) soybeans. The petioles are laid across the approximate soil layers. Evidence of saturated conditions were seen higher in the profile: manganese concretions ~15” depth, gleying in the middle of the profile, and saturated/sticky soil at ~30”. Gravel and rocks were showing up at 24”, which then prevented any further boring beyond 42”. August 31, 2018 in Shelby county.
