This workshop will provide a hands-on opportunity for attendees to handle soil samples and develop a skill set for characterizing the soil texture on a variety of soil samples. These field techniques offer a quicker method than laboratory testing for estimating soil texture on-site. Developing skills to characterize soil texture is intended to support the Erosion and Sediment Control Professional to establish vegetation, improve soil retention, and help inform the selection of appropriate BMPs.
Conduct field tests to determine textural classification of soil samples.
Qualify the three mineral components of soil.
Predict erosion potential and selection of BMPs suitable to the site soils.
