Soil Colour Book

Soil Colour Book

The Colour Identification Book is an ideal tool for determining the composition of the soil. Royal Eijklelkamp offers two different versions for this purpose.

  • Twelve colour charts
  • English language
  • Two variants of booklets



The determination of a subgroup in the soil classification system is based, among other things, on colour differences. The colour of the soil is determined by comparing the sample with standard soil colour charts (Munsell). Soil colour charts are available in Japanese and American.
