Menfro Soil Profile

  • Surface layer: dark brown silt loam
  • Subsurface layer: brown silt loam
  • Subsoil – upper: brown silt loam
  • Subsoil – lower: dark brown silty clay loam
  • Substratum: brown silt loam




Menfro soils are used for corn, soybeans, small grain, and
forage crops and for specialty crops of tobacco, grapes,
vegetables, and fruits. These soils are desirable building sites.
Most of the steeper areas support deciduous hardwood timber.
These soils occur on about 780,000 acres in Missouri.




The first State Capitol building in St. Charles, the present
State Capitol building, and the Governor’s mansion were
constructed on Menfro soils. The home of Daniel Boone and the
first settlement west of the Mississippi River are in areas of
Menfro soils. Hannibal, the home of Mark Twain, and Hermann,
an historic German community, also are on Menfro soils.
