The Ashport, Port, Miller and Brewer soils are predominate in the areas currently utilized for wheat
and alfalfa hay production. These same soils could be utilized for soybeans, corn, Milo or even moved into perennial winter and summer forage production. Some of these areas are in the back up water flood plain of Red Rock Creek and are occasionally flooded. The farmland has an approximately 39 bu. Wheat base.
Some of these same soils and the Teller loam soils are prominent in the introduced forage production of Bermuda, crab grass, annual ryegrass and clover.
Grainola, Ashport, Mulhall, Renfro and Lucien soils support the native Tallgrass Prairie grasses, forbs
and legumes. The native grass pastures are capable of producing 4,000 to 5,000 lbs of forage per acre per year and even more on the better soils.
