Abstract

Natural drainage class (namely, poor, imperfect, and well drained) and slope class are estimated for Iowa counties through a 2% ¼-section sample soil survey. Estimate of soil drainage class is given also by slope class. Counties vary widely in the amount of poorly drained soils. Kossuth County has 56.4% of poorly drained soils, while Allamakee has less than 1%. Land use management and conservation considerations are discussed briefly.
