About this book

This book provides practical, clear and readily accessible guidelines for the general understanding and interpretation of soil test results. It covers results related to a wide range of soil properties relevant to environmental, agricultural, engineering, natural resource issues and investigations. It also includes the use of units of measurements for different soil tests that can sometimes cause confusion and misunderstanding.

The precursor to this book, What do all the numbers mean? widely known as "The Numbers Book", was a trusted guide for interpreting soil test results. This new edition has been completely updated and many sections have been expanded particularly in areas such as acid sulfate soils and soil salinity. Additional clearly identified sources for more detailed information have been included in all sections.
