        For organic soils, for instance fibrisols, would the fibric horizon be designated as F or as Of? Which designation is best to use?

        Thank you,

        Victoria Deakin

          Hi Victoria. Of is the best designation. This way the horizon is not confused with the LFH surface layer of forest or shrub land.
