Welcome soils students!

My name is Amber Anderson, I’m an associate teaching professor at Iowa State University in the Agronomy Department as well as coach of ISU’s soil judging team. I look forward to sharing my knowledge of soils and interacting with those of you both at Iowa State University and beyond. To those outside of Iowa State-hope you have a great soils learning experience, and feel free to contact me!

I would like to acknowledge the contributions, review, and support of Dr. Lee Burras, Dr. Cole Dutter, Heidi Ackerman, Ala Khaleel, Arturo Flores-Godoy, Hallie Sandeen, Casey Luke, and many others at Iowa State University Department of Agronomy. Thank you to external reviewer Sam Indorante. Cover illustration by Audrey Jenkins.
