What is sandy clay loam?
The sandy soils let the water pass through but the clay soils hold the water
Loam is a rich soil, containing sand, clay and decaying organic matter
they are different because caly soil can hold water extremley well but sandy soil holds water poorly
wheat,barley,ryes rice,corn,grain sorghum
Clay loam soil would have more clay then a typical loam type soil. Loam soil is composed of sand, silt, humus, and clay in about an even concentration of each.40-40-40-10…% respectively Clay loam soil is soil that has up to 25% clay, 30 to 50% silt, and the rest sand.
Clay soil is sticky and drains well and loam soil drains but also holds nutrients well.
There are several places one can buy sandy and clay soil. Local greenhouses or landscaping businesses will have the soil.
Hi in answer to the question there are a few answers as clay loams have a different pH depending on what they are being used for. For grass, clayloam has a recommended pH of b…etween 6.0 and 6.2 and on arable land for crops etc between 6.5 and 6.7 however depending on what has been spread or added to the clay loam can effect its pH dramatically. Hope this helps a little
Both respond well to organic soil amendments such as compost, leaft mold, peat moss, etc in order to grow plants.
Clay soil is a mineral soil, yes. All soils contain minerals. Clay soil is a dense soil, and loam is a looser, lighter soil with more air space and composted plant matter …in it.
In Farm Crops
The best things that grow in Sandy Loam is orchards, melons, avocado, tomatoes, squash and citrus, among other plants and crops.
your question is stated wrong! it is should be why does LOAM retain more water than clay and sand.
Yes sandy loam will work well for a bmx jump just remember if your making small or ever larger dirt jumps you need a good foundation and supports throughout the jump. I've fou…nd very helpful that if your jump is under 4 feet tall that stacking even cut logs like a pyramid will work. after that pour a lot of dirt over it, and ALWAYS pack in the dirt very well.
