Crider Soil Profile

  • Surface layer: brown silt loam
  • Subsoil – upper: reddish brown silt loam
  • Subsoil – middle: dark red silty clay loam
  • Subsoil – lower: dark red clay




The Crider soils are extensive, making up about 500,000
acres in Kentucky and occurring in 35 counties in the state.
Most areas are used for crops or pasture. Corn, small grain,
soybeans, tobacco, and hay are the main crops. Crider soils are
highly productive. Many acres of these soils are prime farmland.




The Crider series consists of very deep, well drained,
moderately permeable soils on uplands. They formed in a
mantle of loess and the underlying limestone residuum. Slopes
range from 0 to 20 percent.



The average annual precipitation is
about 48 inches, and the average annual temperature is about
57 degrees F.




The Crider series was established in Caldwell County,
Kentucky, in 1957. It is named after a community in the county.
