Chapter synopsis: A successful soil health study or project requires thorough planning. Accurate results in soil health assessment can be difficult to obtain due to complications from spatial, temporal and managerial variability. A well-planned soil health sampling design will ensure that the resulting data are representative of the sample population and study objectives. This chapter focuses on three crucial stages of a successful soil health study: defining objectives and generating hypotheses, designing a suitable sampling plan and collecting data.
