Currently offering training to volunteer citizens who are interested in contributing to the research efforts through MO DIRT by conducting soil health surveys across the state of Missouri. The training takes about 3 hours, and participants receive instructions on how to measure various physical, chemical, and biological indicators of soil health such as soil temperature, moisture, respiration, nutrients, color, texture, etc. Participants interested in establishing their own survey site will receive a soil kit with a manual.
