2.1.8 Soil Texture Analysis


Soil Texture Analysis by Finger Method

The field method for determining soil textural class involves moulding moist soil between fingers and thumb. By this method the soil texture is found from which approximate values for particle size distribution can be derived. This test is usually an add-on to the standard soil test or standard soil test plus. If you would like to add this test, please put it in the basket and write “+ Soil Tex” on the form printed from the standard soil tests.
