SSURGO Soil data can be downloaded from websoilsurvey https://websoilsurvey.sc.egov.usda.gov/App/HomePage.htm by creating an AOI and then checking out, but this is a tedious process. Is there a way to get the Soil Layer Directly inside QGIS by just giving an area of interest?

SSURGO Soil data can be downloaded directly inside the QGIS by a plugin called Curve Number Generator. https://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/curve_number_generator/.

The plugin can be downloaded from the official repository inside QGIS.

enter image description here

It will download soil data for any area under 100,000 acres within the contiguous United States.
