Senarath (2003) has explained why neither Kawhatau silt loam nor Kiwitea loam is an appropriate name for the soils on the intermediate terrace, and introduced new series names: Coulter silt loam for well-drained soils, Horoeka silt loam for moderately well-drained soils, and Barrow silt loam for imperfectly drained soils (Table 2).
Block A consists of 100% imperfectly drained, Barrow silt loam at 1 : 25 000 scale but is in fact a combination of 62% imperfectly drained Barrow silt loam, 21%, moderately well-drained Horoeka silt loam, and 17% poorly drained Ohakea silt loam when grid-surveyed at a resolution equivalent to 1:5000 scale.
Mineralogical analysis was not carried out for Horoeka silt loam soils; however, the NaF field test on the Horoeka silt loam topsoil samples showed both weak positive reactions and negative reactions for presence of allophone.
