A rich soil (Morris 1992).
soil that contains a roughly equal mixture of clay, sand, and silt. Good for growing most crops.
an organic soil that contains a number of elements like clay, soil and plant material.
fertile soil with balanced amounts of sand, silt, clay and humus.
Loam soils are comprised of sand, silt, and clay particles. There are both coarse and fine loams. Fine loams have more silt and clay than sand. Coarse loams are mainly sand, which facilitates better drainage, but still contain enough silt and clay to hold moisture and nutrients and thereby support soil organisms. For this reason, coarse loams are considered some of the best soils to cultivate, with fine loams not far behind.
a soil texture which consists of equal acting parts of sand, silt, and clay; generally comprised of about 40% sand, 40% silt, and 20% clay
A specific class of soil texture that contains a balanced mixture of sand, silt and clay. Clay must not exceed 27 percent. Loams have enough sand to feel some grit and enough clay to give the soil some body, but the properties and behavior of the soil is dominated neither by sand nor clay.

A soft, easily worked soil containing sand, silt, clay and decayed vegetation.
A soil containing a mixture of clay, silt and sand that is best for the growth of most plants. Loam is not necessarily ideal for viticulture, as it can encourage excessive growth.
