AbstractWith present procedures of inventory and research, the kinds and amount of soil information needed for management of range resources is not always available, nor is the information always used when it is available. More effective use of soil information is hindered by 1) a communication gap between those who collect the information and the resource managers who should be using the information, 2) a priority system for soil survey which places more importance on standard soil surveys on a block basis than on special surveys conducted to meet the immediate needs of management, and 3) lack of a relationship between the soil survey programs and research designed to bring research results into context with land use problems.
