2022 Dynamic Soil Properties for Soil Health (DSP4SH) Virtual Symposium

In this virtual symposium, cooperators share information about the individual project plans, challenges, and results.

Through the Science of Soil Health initiative, cooperators are collecting dynamic soil properties (DSPs). A common set of soil health metrics are collected across regions and soils and the information gathered will be linked to soil survey DSP databases and products.
