BOJORQUEZ, I et al. CARACTERÍSTICAS DE LOS SUELOS DE LAS BARRAS PARALELAS, PLAYAS Y DUNAS DE LA LLANURA COSTERA NORTE DEL ESTADO DE NAYARIT, MÉXICO. cultrop [online]. 2008, vol.29, n.1, pp. 37-42. ISSN 0258-5936.
The characteristics of the northern coastal plain from Nayarit state, Mexico, were presented in two previous papers, as well as soil distribution in five levels of the plain: marine fluvial plain with three levels (high, medium and low), current tide flooding plain and parallel bar zone, beaches and coastal dunes. Therefore, the main soils of this region: Cambisols, Fluvisols, Feozems, Gleysols, Regosols, Arenosols and Solonchaks, besides the characteristics of the most frequent soils -Cambisols and Fluvisols- at the three plain levels were determined. This paper shows important characteristics of the soils formed in the lowest coastal plain: tide flooding plain, parallel bars, beaches and coastal dunes. Data from morphological characteristics, and physico-chemical texture of the main soils -Solonchaks, Regosols and Arenosols- are also presented. This paper comprises the geographical and edaphological characterization stage of the northern coastal plain, that will be good for further investigations starting on the use and sustainable management of agricultural production in this region, a very important aspect to Nayarit state
