    National Cooperative Soil Survey This soil survey is a publication of the National Cooperative Soil Survey, a joint

    effort of the United States Department of Agriculture and other Federal agencies, State agencies including the Agricultural Experiment Stations, and local agencies. The Natural Resources Conservation Service has leadership for the Federal part of the National Cooperative Soil Survey. This survey was made cooperatively by the Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station. The survey is part of the technical assistance furnished to the Pike County Conservation District.

    Major fieldwork for this soil survey was completed in 2007. Soil names and descriptions were approved in 2008. Unless otherwise indicated, statements in this publication refer to conditions in the survey area in 2008. The most current official data are available on the Internet.

    Soil maps in this survey may be copied without permission. Enlargement of these maps, however, could cause misunderstanding of the detail of mapping. If enlarged, maps do not show the small areas of contrasting soils that could have been shown at a larger scale.

    Cover Caption Steep, forested areas of Carnasaw and Sherless soils are in the foreground. Poultry

    houses set on Sherless and Littlefir soils are in the middle ground. Yanush and Bigfork soils are in the background in mountainous areas where shortleaf pine dominates commercial timber production. Timber and poultry production are major sources of agriculture income in Pike County.
