Abstract/Description


Pasture and cropland soils have different properties which influence land productivity. The objectives of this study are to observe (1) The variations of soil properties in three states; (2) access the soil properties of cropland and pasture soil; (3) and compare the soils in terms of health and productivity. The undisturbed and disturbed soil samples from pasture and irrigated crop land were collected from Tennessee, Kentucky, and Illinois. These soils were sampled on September 2-3, 2017. Soil samples were analyzed for soil water holding capacity, soil water content at field capacity, bulk density, soil porosity, soil organic matter, and soil pH. In addition, soil map using web soil survey will be utilized to do a correlation between soil properties and soil type. The data will be presented on the poster. This research will help to better understand the properties of soils in agricultural production.
