New!  State Soil Booklets

This interactive map features state soils booklets – developed and written by soil scientists to provide in-depth information on each state soil.  The booklets include a brief history of how the state soil came to be, where the state soil is found, importance and uses, limitations, management, soil formation, ecoregions and land use, a glossary, and additional resources.  This is a work in progress so check back often as we continue to develop more of the booklets.
