To obtain official soil series description,
The Madison series consists of
well drained, moderately permeable soils that formed in residuum weathered from
felsic or intermediate, high-grade metamorphic or igneous rocks high in mica
content. These soils are very deep to bedrock and moderately deep to saprolite.
They are on gently sloping to steep uplands in the Piedmont. Slopes are mostly
between 4 and 15 percent, but they range from 2 to 60 percent. Near the type
location, mean annual temperature is 59 degrees F and mean annual
precipitation is 60 inches.
Taxonomic class: Fine, kaolinitic, thermic Typic Kanhapludults
