World Soil Day -- A Day In The Life

As we countdown to World Soil Day on Dec. 5th, you might wonder what a soil scientist’s day is like. “A Soil Scientist’s Perspective” will give you a bird’s eye view of the work being done on behalf of soil and the benefits to you—the consumer.

Updated Tools Page

The Tools web page has been re-designed to serve as a one-stop source for new, leading-edge tools and technologies to help farmers, ranchers, and other land users understand, evaluate, and conserve soils. (See the News Release.)

Soil Data Refresh

The entire official soil survey database was refreshed September 25th. The updated official data is now available for use in implementing national programs affecting landowners and managers. Eight new national interpretations and four new regional interpretations have been added.

Map of the Month - October

October’s aesthetic turn-of-the-century map was generated by the soil survey and not only shows soil patterns across the landscape, but also shows features that are now of interest to both historians and scientists.

New Webpage

The Soil Science Division is pleased to feature a new webpage dedicated to technical soil services and the professionals who provide them.
