I am always looking for good science data to help me understand my farm - and why things grow better in some places than others etc. I found this awesome free tool to get data on the soils on my place in Maine. It took me a little while to work out how to use the system to get what I wanted - and developed this guide for others. It is not complex..but a few tricks can help you get information quickly!

If I was buying a place, I would use this tool to see what I was getting into!

Hope this helps people

Cheers
