Description: The search for satisfactory methods of sampling soils for various purposes under a wide variety of conditions has led to the development of the equally wide variety of soil samplers described by Hoover, Olson, and Metz (5), Lull and Reinhart (8), and the U. S. Dept. Agr. Soil Survey staff (11). Although many of these samplers proved successful for the particular sampling jobs for which they were designed, none, unfortunately, were satisfactory for a ll sampling jobs.
