Soil Science
Welcome to Stellenbosch University

​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to Soil S​cience​​​​​​​​

Soil is the extremely thin but precious skin covering our planet that sustains all terrestrial life forms​. Soil Science focuses on the importance of soils as a very slowly renewable natural resource. It involves the study of the properties and proc​​esses that occur in soils, as well as, the sustainable use and management of soils. Soil Science is an indispensable field of study for sustainable food production into the future.​​
