We investigated the relationship between clay mineralogy and the hardsetting properties of soils used for intensive irrigated horticulture in the Carvarvon horticultural district of Western Australia. Hardsetting soils disintegrate when wetted due to a combination of slaking and dispersion processes, resulting in a structureless mass of soil when dry. Soil samples were taken from several horizons of six profiles with hardsetting problems. The profiles were located on six farms in the Carnarvon...[Show more]
