Soil Classification Aid (There is occasional database updating, so inform us if this is not working properly)

Type in the name of the town or city nearest your field, and when a menu pops, click on the menu item that shows both your town or city name and your state. You will then see your town or city in the map viewing frame.

Use the Plus or Minus buttons to zoom the view in or out. You can use your mouse to "grab" the map and move the area in the view frame. Refer to the map unit legend box on the right to identify the soil texture that corresponds to the yellow map symbol number. The Acres refer to the soil map unit areas displayed in the view frame, so zoom in or out as needed, to fill the frame with your field.
