Soil science is an important discipline, in which all topics related to soil can be studied, including characterization, physical, chemical and biological attributes, genesis, morphology, its fertility and plant nutrition. Soil is the second lung for the humanity after the plant, where the universe cannot survive without both cultivated plants and soil. The forming of soil may need hundreds of years, so the conservation of soil is a global crucial issue. Thus, the monitoring and continuous analyses of soil are needed to solve any problem, promote its productivity, prevent any harmful agent on soil, and save it. Therefore, the Lab is the main place, in which we could carry out some experiments, diagnosis the soil, know the nutritional status, determine the suitability for cultivating different crops, the microbial, biochemical, physical, and biological characterization of soil. This editorial call for more concern about the soil through submission articles that discuss all topics related to the soil science and its security. In this editorial work the photos are the main component which will present the most important thing in nay Lab “the instruments”. The Lab and its facilities are necessary for the quality of any scientific research.
