Abstract: This paper examines the information transfer of soil taxonomic classification units of the Hungarian soil classification from the viewpoint of land productivity evaluation applications. For this purpose statistical analyses of a national soil and plant production database (with 80000 entries) have been applied. Results show that soil groupings both in taxonomic and productivity classifications may be incorrect in some cases. Taxonomic misclassification can occur at higher levels of soil classification. With only the general purpose classification of soil characteristics in lower level taxonomic units major interpretive information loss can occur.
