Soil Quizzes & Trivia

How much do you know about "Soil"? If we say "soil", what comes to your mind? Is it the same as dirt? You might be surprised but it isn't because dirt is restricted to displaced soil. Before we get too technical, do you think you have the tools to toil with our quizzes on Soil?

Do you have the answer to some basic questions like… What are the processes that form soil? I hope your knowledge hasn’t "eroded" somewhere else! Are you familiar with the physical properties of soil? Just like our questions, there will probably be some rough spots but nothing to worry about.
