[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - (Ground)

I agree it could be considered as humus. The distinction between organic soil and humus is ambiguous according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humus , but I think it is general enough to target mostly organic soil.

Shall we consider to add this specification on the tagging? Or would humus be considered as bare soil anyway?

Organic without any mineral, would you still call that soil?

I also disagree that “soil can be organic or mineral”. It has typically both, organic and mineral components, but organic components are a hard requirement. Otherwise it would be sand, or rock, or silt or clay or loam etc. (depending on grain size/s).
