The Nova Scotia Soil Survey and Maps
The Nova Scotia soil surveys provide information on the different soil types across the province. In agriculture, they are often used to identify the soil type and inherent limitations associated with the different soil series. The Nova Scotia soil surveys were published from 1963-1975, where soils were classified based on the Canadian System of Soil Classification.
In this online version created by Perennia, we are delivering the information from the Nova Scotia soil surveys in an easier, user-friendly way that has been tested by our soil and agri-technology specialists.
This soil series map is a responsive web-based map that producers can use to identify their soil series and the properties associated with that series simply by clicking on a location and reading the pop-up.
