Which soil classifiers describe my farm?

Which biome am I in?

We’ve pulled together six main biomes across the world – have a look at the map to find out which one your farm belongs to.

N.B. These classifiers are only relevant for subscribers to the Soilmentor Regen Platform – you do not need to tell us your biome if you have a basic Soilmentor subscription.

Which soil texture describes my sample sites?

Your soil texture affects how the Regen Platform interprets your results, so your Regen Dashboard won’t appear unless you’ve added this information to each of your sample sites. Set the soil texture for each of your sample sites while logged in to your web app (in settings) here, or in the ‘details’ area of your phone app. Use the list below to choose your soil texture.

Soil types:

  • Heavy = Clay, Clay loam
  • Medium = Silty loam, Loamy clay, Silt, Loam, Silty clay loam, Sandy clay
  • Light = Sand, Sandy loam

Which rainfall describes my fields?

Your rainfall level will affect how the Regen Platform will interpret your results – once you’ve identified which biome you’re in, choose the annual rainfall level for your farm from the list below to activate the Regen Dashboard on your account. Set the rainfall of your fields while logged in to your web app here, or in the ‘details’ area of your phone app.
