The study of soils in Wisconsin is ongoing. All 72 counties of the state have been mapped at a resolution of 1:30,000 or finer. Official soil descriptions and extent maps are available for all 740 series identified in the state. Primary laboratory characterizations are available for more than 1000 pedons in the state. So the soil conditions have been well mapped and there is considerable information available. In this chapter, we will discuss the need to update the information and discuss some ways how this can be done. In addition, we will discuss some soil research areas that in our view need attention.
