How to use a different soil texture in WRF

Dear WRF experts,

How do I specify a different soil texture in the namelist.wps?

According to the GEOGRID.TBL, the default is soiltype_top_30s.

How do I set this in the namelist so that the bnu_soil_30s is used for both the top and bottom level.

The geogrid part of the namelist looks like this:

Where do I insert that option for the soil texture.

Thank you in advance for the help!
Please set the namelist option as:

geog_data_res = 'bnu_soil_30s +default',

With this option, WPS will use soil information from the bnu_soil_30s dataset.
