Big Island Andisols

In our first major field campaign since 2018, the Hawaiʻi Soil Health Research Team are tackling Andisols (volcanic ash soils) on the Big Island this month. A cooperative agreement with the NRCS through Dynamic Soil Properties 4 Soil Health provides the chance to investigate udands and ustands under “natural” conditions, intermediate disturbance, and intensive cultivation. As a result, we can better understand our proposed Hawaiʻi Soil Health Indicators and align with the national database. Also, our team get to spend July on the Big Island!
