The Munsell Book of Soil Color Charts M50215B are set up to allow users to make soil colour evaluations in the field quickly and easily. The colour of soil can determine if land has the correct nutrients for growing particular crops or if it will have sufficient drainage for building, these are just two examples of the many uses of a Munsell Soil Color Chart. The soil classification system that has been developed around the Munsell Color System is an established and accepted process to assign a soil type. This classification system has been used in the United States for more than 55 years to aid in the management and stewardship of natural resources.
