Test results reported here indicate that deep, permeable, medium-textured soils can be expected to outyield soils of heavy texture or of restricted depth. Also, heavy-textured, basin clay soils can be expected to outyield restricted-depth, claypan soils. The Olcott soil series appears poorly suited to sugar beet production.
