Soil Mapping

NIBIO is responsible for the nationwide mapping of soil on cultivated land. The purpose of this soil mapping is to document and pinpoint the properties of the soil as a resource. Soil information creates a foundation for knowledge-based decisions within agronomy and area planning. This information is also pertinent to risk assessments related to the environmental impacts of agriculture
