New commercial soil health tests aim to provide knowledge of soil biological, chemical, and physical properties of soils, to assist farmers in improving overall soil productivity.  We evaluated these tests on 24 Indiana farm fields, to determine their usefulness in distinguishing different management systems and monitoring changes over time.  We will discuss the pluses and minuses of these tests and offer some logical next steps for further development and testing.
