sapric material

Organic soil material that contains less than 1/6 recognizable fibers (after rubbing) of un-decomposed plant remains.  Bulk density is very low and water holding capacity is very high.

 

Note:  While Sapric Material is commonly referred to as Muck or Mucky Soils, this definition is not to be confused with the "Mucky Soils" definition used when evaluating bog turtle habitat.
