Location of where we took the Soil Sample:
-The terrain was pretty well flat with a little bit of change in elevation
-There was a tall grass in this field that looked kind of like some type of prairie grasses maybe fescue mixed with a little brome. Also there was one tree located in the center of the field with trees surrounding the perimeter.
-I think the previous plants were about the same it looks like it would have been the same types of grass there maybe a few more trees also.
