Rolling Plains

The Rolling Plains area (24 million acres) coincides with the Rolling Plains land resource area of the southern Central Lowlands. The area is between the High Plains and the Cross Timbers and Prairies in the northern part of the state. It is a nearly level to rolling plain having moderate to rapid surface drainage. Soils of the uplands are pale brown to reddish brown to dark grayish brown, neutral to calcareous sandy loams, clay loams, and clays. Saline soils are common, as are shallow and stony soils with pockets of deep sand. Bottomlands have only minor areas of reddish brown, loamy to clayey, calcareous alluvial soils.
