Soil management: building a stable base for agriculture
Jerry L. Hatfield et al
Degradation of soils continues at a pace that will eventually create a local, regional, or even global crisis when diminished soil resources collide with increasing climate variation. It's not too late to restore our soils to a more productive state by rediscovering the value of soil management, building on our ever-expanding scientific understanding of soils.
This book is unique because of its treatment of soil management based on principles-the physical, chemical, and biological processes and how together they form the foundation for soil management.
Audience: Students, certified/practicing professionals, industry and academic researchers in soil science, land management, environmental science, food security, and ecosystem services. Whether new to soil science or needing a concise reference, readers will benefit from this book's ability to integrate the science of soils with management issues and long-term conservation efforts.
