Digital soil mapping to support efficient regional fertilizer-use management in Vietnam


This research aims to make a digital soil map in Vietnam from limited data points using emerging technology for soil mapping and prediction of soil properties at fine resolution. These new maps will be used as the inputs to calculate nutrient demand and provide a web-based geographic information system for responsive assessment and visualization of soil-crop-specific nutrient demand.
