The Montgomery County Soil Conservation District offers many services to our landowners and operators in addition to Conservation Programs.
Soil Survey Information
The district has a completed soil survey book for Montgomery County and we are able to reproduce soils maps and information as needed and answer any questions you might have about the tendencies of your soil. You may also visit http://www.websoilsurvey.nrcs.usda.gov/.
You may also access the topographical maps for Montgomery County in our office. The maps show contour lines and symbols that represent such features as streets, buildings, streams, swamps and woods.
Information about soil testing is available at the Conservation District office. Whether it is a wildlife food plot, a farm field, or a garden, soils information is ESSENTIAL. Soil sample boxes are available at the office, and for a small fee, we can send them in for you. Don’t understand how to read soil test results? Let us help!
