Note to Researcher: From the Soil Health Assessment Center web page (July 2015): "The Soil Health Assessment Center originated in 1985 when the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, in cooperation with the National Resources Conservation Service, funded an in-state soil lab to aid the ongoing Missouri Soil Survey. MDNR provided the initial funding to set up the Soil Characterization Lab in CAFNR and provided financial support until the Missouri Soil Survey was completed in 2008. The laboratory has changed locations several times over the years; from 2002 through 2014 it was housed in the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department. At the start of 2015 the lab returned to its roots in CAFNR and moved into a newly remodeled facility at the university's South Farm." The Center has also been known as the Soil Health and Characterization Laboratory.
