Some of the more recent soil survey projects include:

For some projects, thousands of sampling sites may not be enough to evaluate soil and land recourses. For other projects, however, no or possibly only one testing site could be enough to guide decision making. Logically, every soil survey is different and stands on its own regardless of its size, purpose or cost.


Deep ripping/subsoiling/soil mixing implement ‘Vibrosoiler’ (Australian patent)

The Vibrosoiler is an oscillating-foot ripper or subsoiler with an amplitude ranging from 1 – 3 Hz. It is an ameliorative implement designed to penetrate up to 120 cm depth to fracture some impending layers or modify some soil profiles below the standard cultivation depth.
