Technical Abstract: A comprehensive soil property database is being developed as a major component of the Ohio Agricultural Water Management Guide. The soil property database includes soil physical and chemical parameters required for the evaluation, design, construction, and operation and management of agricultural water management systems and their components for the central concept of all of the state's soil series. Focal areas for the use of the soil database include: agricultural drainage; crop production irrigation; subirrigation and controlled drainage; constructed wetlands for agricultural waste and water treatment, and water supply and storage; environmental considerations, including chemical leaching indices, wastewater irrigation, etc. The database is a product developed by the Ohio Agricultural Water Management Guide Working Group, and will be accessible at a web site later in 1998. This paper provides an overview of fthe process of developing the database and its components, a summary of th information itself, the review process, and a summary of the potential applications. Other work in 1998 and 1999 will be a custom on-line query system at the web site that will build a site specific dataset for various applications.
