The National Soil Database has produced, for the first time, a national baseline database of soil geochemistry including data point maps and spatial distribution maps of major nutrients, major elements, essential trace elements, trace elements of special interest and minor elements. In addition, this study has generated a National Soil Archive, comprising both dried soil samples and a nucleic acids (DNA) archive as well as sampling and location information for each sampling point. The terms of reference for this physical archive are presently being drawn up by the EPA, Teagasc and NUIG. This National Soil Archive represents a considerable research resource. The report and archive will provide Ireland with a sound, well structured baseline of soil geochemical properties relevant to environmental, agronomic and health related pressures and against a background of increasing soil protection policies.
