Soil surveys issued prior to 2008 are archive copies that are not compatible with the screen-reader software used by the visually impaired. For accessibility assistance, email email@example.com or call (402) 437-5499.
Historical and supplemental documents are also available. Printed soil survey reports were the main source of soils information from 1899 to 2005. Most of these reports are county-based and have been converted to PDF (links below). USDA phased out the printing of reports after making Web Soil Survey the official source for information in 2005. For information about reference copies of a publication, contact your State Conservationist.
Historical soil surveys are being moved into https://archive.org/details/usda-soil-surveys. See "Access Historical Soil Surveys from Internet Archive" instructions in the Additional Documents section.
Please contact us if you see something that needs to be updated, if you have any questions, or if you need accessibility assistance.
