    The name of Vertisol is derived from Latin “vertere” meaning to invert. This case restricts development of soil horizons in profile. These soils have the capacity to swell and shrink, inducing cracks in the upper parts of the soil and distinctive soil structure throughout the soil. The formation of these specific features are caused by a heavy texture, a dominance of swelling clay in the Cited by: 5.

    INTRODUCTION. The Vertisolic soil order is the most recent addition to the Canadian System of Soil Classification. In Soil Taxonomy (Soil Survey Staff ), Vertisols are described as clay-textured soils that exhibit deep, wide cracks at some time during the year; the bulk density of the soil mass between these cracks is parent materials of these soils have marked tendencies to Cited by:   The Vertisols of Ethiopia: their properties, classification and management.
