FOR SUCCESSFUL CULTIVATION.



Peat and muck soils deep peat of the sawgrass plains.


SSandy soils moderately good.


LAND SUITED FOR LIMITED CULTIVATION:

IV LAND OF LIMITED PRODUCTIVITY SUITED ONLY TO
SPECIAL CROPS OR SEASONAL USAGE.



I Z Peat and muck soils depth less than 60 inches over limestone.


Sandy soils light colored, poor natural drainage, low fertility.


SMarls and calcareous soils depth less than 24 inches.


I Rockdale rock land.


LAND NOT SUITED FOR CULTIVATION:

V LAND SUITED FOR GRAZING OR TIMBER, PRINCIPALLY.



Sandy soils loose sands, or hardpan soils.

DATUM IS MEAN SEA LEVEL
CONTOUR INTERVAL 1 FOOT

Note: The contours are approximate and omit innumerable hummocks and
depressions of small or undetermined area. They are based on leveling along
lines in many places several miles apart. Surveys were made mostly in 1940-42.
Drained peat soils are subject to continued subsidence.
