Abstract
The present-day outlook upon soil survey has been aptly summarized in the statement that its results form "the factual basis in the development of sound programmes of land use." The growing literature of the subject now constantly reminds those who are applying soil science in this branch that it is the land that is the reality that is to be investigated, classified, inventoried, and interpreted. Soil maps and survey reports are to find their justification as guides to the efficient use of the land; they are necessary documents in the framing of policy, whether local or national, in regard to rural production.
