Data from these systems is fed into ASRIS
. However, researchers within these agencies and certainly those within universities do not have easy access to these systems.
A national soils database (ASRIS
) provided data for soil constraints and several models showing relationships between individual soil constraints and grain yield were found to be robust predictors of costs of soil constraints.

In Australia, in 1998, as part of its brief to carry out baseline assessments of soil, land, water, and vegetation, the National Land and Water Resources Audit (the Audit) commissioned the Australian Soil Resources Information System (ASRIS
) to create a national soils dataset, an important input into future natural resource management decisions.
2000), from area-weighted averages of a compilation of survey data in ASRIS
, in which the level of detail depends on the survey coverage in each region and from the depth-weighted average of our maps shown in Fig.
, a range of soil attributes, including soil texture, hydraulic conductivity, and carbon context were derived by combing digitised land systems maps and soil surveys and linked to look-up tables listing soil type and corresponding attribute values (McKenzie et al.
