Description: Refresh your experience with classification of soils found in the BC Peace River area. A better understanding of soil processes and how they are used in the Canadian Soil Classification System provide insight and application to a wide variety of land use activities. Field tests for soil health and soil quality are now commonly used by agronomists and land managers. We will demonstrate some of these on Peace River soil and discuss applicability and interpretations.
