Typical attributes of Central Otago Semi-arid soils in their unmodified state include. •Accummulation of pedogenic Lime. •Accummulation of soluble salts. •Limited weathering. •Low organic matter. •Low clay content.

•Free Size: KB. Soil Descriptions The soils of Central Otago may be divided into five main groups: (1) BroMJH-grey earths and related salty, shallow and steep-land soils of the driest parts of the inland basins and adjacent hills. (2) Yellow-gvey earthsand related shallow and steepland soils of the moister parts of the inland basins and adjacent hills.

The dry inland valleys and basins of the region-broadly described as Central Otago constitute a distinct soil zone, and the dominant soils within it ‘are referred to as the brown grey earths.

Textures range from silts to stony gravels and the soils possess a firm sub-soil to,which the name clay pan is given.

Soils without a clay pan. Soils are the basis of life on Earth: they support natural terrestrial ecosystems, and those created by humankind, on which we rely for food and other key resources. But increasingly our activities, from agriculture and forestry, to urban, industrial and even recreational land uses, threaten the health of.

Central Otago's climate is the closest approximation to a continental climate anywhere in New Zealand. This climate is part of the reason why Central Otago vineyards are successful in this region. This inland region is one of the driest regions in the country, sheltered from prevailing rain-bearing weather conditions by the high mountains to the west and hills of the ished: (Dunedin settlement).

As an elevated region, relatively distant from the ocean, Central Otago has a more continental climate than any other area of the country: winters are quite cold and dry, summers hot and dry.

Soils. Central Otago soils are moderately old (often windblown loess) formed over successive ice ages as the glaciers ground schist rocks to a fine flour. Layers of loess at various depths are interspersed with river gravels with the addition of sandier soils formed by water erosion.

Soils are therefore free draining even when heavy in texture.Request PDF | Thyme Invasion and Soil Properties in the Central Otago Region of New Zealand | The aim of this research was to increase understanding of how exotic plant invasion can alter abiotic.Westland region through modifi cations of very wet soils called ipping’ to improve soil drainage.
