Description

Soils form a continuum across every farmer's field, constantly changing in both physical and chemical characteristics. Sometimes these changes are visible; sometimes they are completely masked to the eye. Variables such as organic matter, water-holding capacity, pH, and soil nutrient levels differ; combined, they affect crop yields. In either case, these differences should result in different management practices, including fertilizer applications, being recommended for different soils within a field.
