Soils Exam – Council of Soil Science Examiners (CSSE)

Date: November 16, 2018
The exams for the Certified Professional Soil Scientist certification and state Soil Scientist licensing programs are developed and maintained by the Council of Soil Science Examiners (CSSE). The certification program, in its entirety, is overseen by the Soils Certifying Board of the Soil Science Society of America. The Texas Board of Geoscientists utilizes the Council of Soil Science Examiners (CSSE) exam as part of licensing. Proof of passing scores on both portions of the CSSE exam is required in order to be licensed in the soil science discipline in Texas.

Demonstration – redesigned rainfall simulator trailer

Date/Time: January 31, 2018 @ 3:30 pm
Location: G. Rollie White Visitors’ Center, 7707 Raymond Stotzer Parkway (Hwy 60), College Station, TX
“As topics regarding soil health and soil biology begin to dominate our industry, few things are as evident and sincere as a rainfall simulator demonstration. The purpose of the demonstration is to convey the importance of soil health management systems (SHMS) and their effects on soil erosion and infiltration; arguable two of the most important processes influencing the agricultural industry. A typical demonstration will compare the effects of tillage and the importance of residue management. If you are able to attend, NRCS soil scientists will perform a demonstration and give tours of the redesigned rainfall simulator trailer at the G. Rollie White Visitor’s Center on Jan 31st, at 3:30 pm, preceding the PSSAT social hour.” – Carlos Villareal
