This field book is a condensed version of Indiana Soils: Evaluation for Agriculture and Home Sites, which is the basic publication for teaching soil science and conducting soil judging contests.
The intent for students to take this book into the field and use it to prepare for soil contests. We encourage students to study Indiana Soils - available on the Education Store under the product code ID-72-W - to better understand what they do in the field and why they do it.
Target Audience: Teachers of soil science, judges of soil contests, students in the field.
