This report compiles and summarizes some chemical, physical, and mineralogical properties of samples collected in 1965 for studies on pesticide adsorption and desorption by soils. The 16 soil series sampled generally represent soils of agricultural importance and occur extensively in Minnesota. They include a wide range of soil properties found in agricultural soils in the state. The actual sampling site for each soil series met two criteria: it was close to a modal or typical profile and it had a known 5-year history of pesticide use. Supplementary profile descriptions and laboratory data were available prior to sampling from the Soil Conservation Service or the Bureau of Public Roads for a few of the soil series at their sampling sites.
