As revealed in Figure 3B, which shows the map cells that were reclassified by the CLUE-S algorithm, the allocation of annual crop areas primarily occurred in areas under Typic Dystrudepts and Rhodic Kanhapludults, while fruit farming and silviculture were allocated near water courses and were distant from roads.

Field experiments were conducted in 2014 and 2015 at the Agronomic Experimental Station of the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (Eldorado do Sul, Brazil), on an Ultisol (Rhodic Paleudult) exhibiting the following physical and chemical characteristics in the 0-20cm layer: clay=250g [dm.sup.-3]; pH=5.2 ([H.sub.2]O); P=42mg [dm.sup.-3] (Mehlich-1); K=202mg [dm.sup.-3] (Mehlich-1); organic matter=18g [dm.sup.-3] and soil bulk density (0-5cm)=1350kg m-3.
