Soil Method Working Draft


#1

This document is collaboratively edited and will generate the final version of the Soil testing method used for the Real Food Campaign.

We are using the following to convert this document automatically into JSON to make it machine readable https://github.com/njvack/markdown-to-json. Please be aware of the formatting so that the conversion to JSON works well!

So - conventions for this format.

When you add a method, always order it “Method 1”, “Method 2” … etc. That way people can identify which items in the top level are methods via APIs.

Each method should have a folder which contains relevant files, like ODK survey files, scripts, etc. with the same name as the method (so “Method 1”, “Method 2”, …). When accessing the method through APIs, the requester can then assume that folder exists with the same name as the method.
