  Soil Analysis: An Interpretation Manual is a practical guide to soil tests. It considers what soil tests are, when they can be used reliably and consistently, and discusses what limits their application. It is the first nationally accepted publication that is appropriate for Australian soils and conditions. The first three chapters review the general principles and concepts of soil Cited by: Soil Sampling Depth. Interpretations fo r the nitrate-N, sulfate-S and chloride-Cl soil tests are based on a inch soil profi le sampling depth. All other nutrient interpreta-tions are based on surface soil samples collected to a depth of six inches. We suggest collecting a sample from the 0 to 24 inch depth for N, S and Cl recommen-File Size: KB. keys necessary for the classification of soils in a form that can be used easily in the field.

“Like the soil, mind is fertilized while it lies fallow, until a new burst of bloom ensues.” “Collaboration has no hierarchy. The Sun collaborates with soil to bring flowers on the earth.” “Although the surface of our planet is two-thirds water, we call it the Earth. We say we are earthlings, not waterlings. Consistency of the soil is easily determined by a “blow count” reading, which provides a measure of the soil density as generally measured by a standard penetrometer test (SPT). The blow count is taken at the time of drilling An SPT sampler is a hollow tube set on the end of the drill string. There is a trip hammer at the rig that drives it. The Parable of the Four Soils goes on to describe the types of things that get in the way of us hearing God’s Word and obeying it.
