Abstract: This paper examines the information transfer of the units in the general purpose Hungarian soil classification in relation to land productivity evaluations. Statistical analyses of a national soil and plant production database have been applied. Results show that in some cases soil groupings, both in the general purpose taxonomy and productivity classifications, may be incorrect. Taxonomic misclassification can occur at higher levels of soil classification. Without a more specified classification of soil characteristics in the lower taxonomic units important information can be lost.
