We are pleased you found your way to our website. We are a professional organization of soil scientists who are dedicated to the advancement of soil science in Ohio. We invite you to learn more about us.
Soil is the earth's natural foundation, filter, and seed bed. The failure or success of building foundations are a function of soil properties and the engineering needed to overcome these properties. Soil acts as a filter; it cleans as water percolates through it. Soil is the medium in which plants grow and seeds germinate. How well a plant grows is largely dependent upon soil properties, which control a soil's water and nutrient holding capacities that are vital to the success of plant growth.
