The Munsell Soil Color Book  M50215B is an affordable way of evaluating the type of soil that is present in a given area and the charts 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 globally recognised process to assign a soil type, enabling reliable data about the colour of soils at a particular site to be shared with colleagues anywhere around the world.

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.

The Munsell Soil Color Charts are used by a variety of industries and professions including teaching subjects such as geology and archaeology as well as those involved with building and contracting, landscaping, forestry, forensics, environmental and soil science.

The two most commonly used pages in the YR range are also available as a separate YR 2 page pack. Users may also be interested in the Munsell Rock Color Book
