Cation Exchange Capacity
Source: Natural Resources Conservation Service STATSGO Database
Map Description:
Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) is the sum total of exchangeable cations that soil can absorb. CEC is affected by several factors including but not limited to: soil texture, amount of organic matter and kind and amount of clay. Fine textured soil with high organic matter content tend to have a higher CEC.
