Understanding the basic properties of soils leads to better crop management, soil nutrient management, and soil and water conservation. The Soil Survey includes soil maps and descriptions of each type of soil in each county including interpretations of a soil's potential for use. Traditional Soil Survey reports have been paper copies of text, tables, and maps that traditionally have been cumbersome to use.
