This article provides an Overview of the Soils Cross-Cutting Research Activity (CCRA) within the Sustainable Agriculture and Natural Resource Management Collaborative Research Support Program (SANREM CRSP). Through the Soils CCRA, a soil library compiling soil test results from all SANREM CRSP project sites (Haiti, Bolivia, Ecuador, Ghana, Mali, Lesotho, Mozambique, Uganda, Kenya, India, Nepal, Cambodia, and the Philippines) will be created. Samples will be tested on the basis of soil fertility, soil organic carbon Content (SOC), and particulate organic matter (POM).
