Illinois has some of the most productive soil in the world. But not all the state’s soils are equally suited for field crops. The key to gaining the best usage of any soil lies in understanding its nature and properties, and matching these with the appropriate purpose. This detailed reference book describes 57 different soil associations and their locations in Illinois.

The book covers the following topics:

  • Key to Illinois soils
  • Soil associations of Illinois
  • Development of Illinois soils
  • Major soil orders

Includes a General Soil Map of Illinois that shows location and extent of soil associations in the state.

The General Soil Map of Illinois is also sold separately.
