Due to the increased need for food and water globally, understanding soil health is more important than ever. Soil health is necessary to sustain crop productivity and for the establishment of soil ecosystem services that serve many functions crucial to agricultural and environmental production. The project team is creating a Soil Health and Soil Ecosystem Services data platform where shareable and archivable files will be made available for current and future use. The integration of data will be accomplished through data mining and machine learning procedures that will be contributing to the creation of this database.
