The agriculture map illustrates the varying potential of a specific area for agricultural production. Classes of land capability for agriculture are based on mineral soils grouped according to their potential and limitations for agricultural use. The classes indicate the degree of limitation imposed by the soil in its use for mechanized agriculture. The subclasses indicate the kinds of limitations that individually or in combination with others, are affecting agricultural land use. Characteristics of the soil as determined by soil surveys. Purpose: These agricultural capability maps can be used at the regional level for making decisions on land improvement and farm consolidation, for developing landuse plans, and for preparing equitable land assessments.
