Color Chart Accurately Describes Your Soil Samples

Universal soil comparison

By Jack

from Janesville, WI

Staff Reviewer

Comments about Munsell� Soil Color Charts:

The Munsell system of color notation is the best universal way of comparing soil types. Individual chips included cover virtually all soil types. One option I've often suggested regarding the cover issues is to transfer the pages into a Rite in the Rain 1" binder, Ben Meadows item 101210. This solution is better than even the older vinyl covers for durability and visibility.

Comments about Munsell� Soil Color Charts:

Even though the cover has changed over the years, the information on the pages themselves are very useful. There is a replacement pack available too.

      Comments about X-RITE Munsell� Soil Color Charts:

      I'm currently shopping, but will have to first hunt off-market for a replacement for my Munsell Soil Chart, as the price here has gone up tremendously, and the cardboard cover the product is sold in just doesn't warrant the price - the intended use is for dirty, wet field conditions, under which I won't want to use the new, expensive edition with the cardboard cover.

          Comments about X-RITE Munsell� Soil Color Charts:

          Being a "soil color chart," one could easily imagine that the person looking to use this particular book would be near soils (ie outside). Why would you then make it out of a material that would swell if exposed to wet dirt? Go back to the old covers!

          The old plastic covers were compact and more useful while in the field. The cardboard covers are easily damaged by frequent exposure to humidity.

          It would be helpful to sell alternative binders as replacements for the cardboard binders.

          Pros

            Cons

            • Poor Design
            • Too Big To Fit In Vest

            Best Uses

              Comments about Munsell� Soil Color Charts:

              Like the new pages but this new binder cover is useless. It is too big to fit in field vest and keeps falling out. Plus when it falls out you have to really look for it because of the new brow color. Miss the old blue binders.
