From professional farmers to backyard gardeners, it is a common knowledge that understanding what kind of soil you have enlightens the measures taken to produce better crops. Natural Resources Conservation Services is spreading the word of an app that can help all with an interest in their soil. “SoilWeb reached a new milestone this year when it was integrated with Google Maps and designed to scale across any device, desktop, tablet or smart phone,” said NRCS Chief Matthew Lohr. “SoilWeb app is a portable interface to authoritative digital soil survey data from NRCS, giving users access to practical detailed scientific soil information on the go.” This means that there is linked information concerning different types of soil profiles, soil makeup, land classification, hydraulic rates, erosion rates, and soil suitability ratings. The app is also helpful to other professions as well including construction and landscaping. This could be a wonderful resource for those across the Uintah Basin looking for ways to improve their garden. Download the free SoilWeb app today.
