They shrink as they dry and swell as they become moist. The natural vegetation is predominantly grass, savanna, open forest, or desert shrub. Most Vertisols are well suited to mechanized farming if there is plenty of rainfall or irrigation water.

Vertisols generally have gentle slopes, although a few slope strongly. They develop commonly in large pedons and polypedons. The natural vegetation is a function of the soil climate. Most Vertisols are well suited for mechanized farming if there is plenty of rainfall or irrigation water and if suitable management practices are followed.
