A 1961 soil survey of the Menominee Indian Reservation

Soils of the Menominee Indian Reservation and their suitability for agriculture


In 1961, A.J. Klingelhoets of the U.S. Soil Conservation Service conducted a soil survey of the Menominee Indian Reservation to assess the area's suitability for increased agricultural use.  At that time, agriculture was not a primary source of income on the reservation.  The soil survey identifies several areas deemed suitable for more extensive agricultural use.
