266 Symposium--Digital Soil Maps and Models to Assist Decision Making for Regional and Global Issues: I

Oral Session
ASA Section: Global Agronomy
This symposium will provide examples and information of how soil maps produced using digital soil mapping procedures and processes are being applied and used to make informed decisions relating to agronomy, forestry, engineering  and other land use practices around the world to better understand issues relating to food security, climate change adaptation and environmental degradation.
