This class will introduce students to the history and fundamental principles of soil science (pedology). We then dive into the detail of the soils of the Blackland Prairie in detail. There is an outdoor lab which takes approximately 30 minutes. Students will be expected to make field observations, test pH and perform texturing of the soil to determine what the soil type is.
This presentation includes a hands-on soil lab including pre-meeting homework and a soil survey. Please download the document ahead of our chapter meeting.
