The Southern Mississippi Valley Alluvium is commonly called the Delta, however, it is not a delta in a geologic sense, but is a series of river deposits in a very wide valley (Guccione, ). These sediments are late Tertiary and Quaternary age deposits of the Mississippi River, which dip very slightly to the south in the same direction as the.

Soils in LRR O have primarily developed in Holocene and Pleistocene alluvium associated with floodplains and terraces of the Mississippi, Arkansas, and Red Rivers. The region has fertile soils, smooth topography, abundant moisture, and a long growing season, which favor agricultural : L.

West, J. Shaw, E. Mersiovsky. Southern Mississippi Valley Alluvium (MLRA ) Characteristics of alluvial soils in this MLRA depend on age, depositional environment within the river floodplain, and natural drainage.

Natural levees in the modern Mississippi River floodplain are up to 2 km wide with correspondingly wide backswamps and abandoned meander loops.

It therefore yields very fertile soils such as those of the deltas of the Mississippi, the Nile, the Ganges and Brahmaputra, and the Huang rivers.

The Forestdale series consists of very deep, poorly drained, very slowly permeable soils that formed in clayey and silty alluvium. These soils are on low terraces or natural levees bordering former channels of the Mississippi River and its major tributaries in the Southern Mississippi Valley Alluvium Major Land Resource Area ().

EllsworthCited by: Southern Mississippi Valley Alluvium: The Delta Soils are naturally diverse in the Delta as a result of their alluvial origin in sediment from areas north of Mississippi.

Particle sizes within the sediment decrease as distance from the originating stream increases—that is, soils closer to running water have proportionally more large silt and sand particles than soils further from the stream.

The state of Mississippi is a part of the National Cooperative Soil Survey (NCSS)program. Mississippi's Soil Survey program has two major areas of operation production; they are soil survey and technical soil services. Quality assurance and technical assistance for Mississippi's soil survey program are provided by Southeast Coastal Plain and Lower Mississippi River Valley, Soil Survey Region.
