Encyclopedia of Soil Science, Second Edition - Two-Volume by Rattan Lal

By Rattan Lal

Compiled by means of greater than four hundred specialists, the Encyclopedia of Soil technology, moment Edition covers all branches of soil technology together with pedology, mineralogy, physics, soil mechanics, hydrology, chemistry, biology, ecology and administration, and recovery of problem/degraded soils. Thematic subject matters facing soil administration handle various demanding situations together with soil constitution, tillage tools and mulch farming, irrigation, drainage and water desk administration, fertilizer and nutrient administration, erosion regulate, and administration of soil natural subject. Entries are alphabetically prepared, and topic and writer indices can be found for simple entry.
Upholding the excessive ordinary of caliber set by means of the former version, this two-volume moment variation deals an unlimited array of contemporary peer-reviewed articles. It showcases learn and practices with further sections on ISTIC-World Soil info, root development and agricultural administration, nitrate leaching administration, podzols, paramos soils, water repellant soils, infrequent earth components, and extra. With 1000's of entries protecting tillage, irrigation, erosion keep an eye on, floor water, and soil degradation, the e-book bargains easy access to all branches of soil technological know-how, from mineralology and physics, to soil administration, recovery, and international warming. it's also to be had in an internet version.
