Soil Scientists


The Soil Scientist Licensing Program was created in 2009 to regulate soil scientists in the State of Tennessee. The current requirements for the licensure of soil scientists can be found in Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 62, Chapter 18, Part 2.


The mission of the Tennessee Soil Science Licensing Program is to protect the public health, safety and welfare through the regulation of soil scientists.
