    Abstract

    Because of the growing need for more experimental ground for the Agricultural University and the Agricultural Institutes, this study was made to indicate soil qualities around Wageningen and the possibilities of soil improvement (water control). Soil classification was based on the concepts of soil landscapes, ranges and types; these categories were defined as units with corresponding geological origin, similarity of main soil properties and water control (visible as reduction and oxidation phenomena). Connections between geomorphology and hydrology were studied in soil catenas with a view to drainage improvement.

    Geological studies proved the occurrence of some loamy layers, influencing water table. Details of the surveyed area, remarks on soil formation and suggestions for a Dutch system for soil classification completed the study.
