Soil resources depletion is a widespread, direct threat to the sustainability of agricultural production.  Dramatic changes in soil managment concepts are needed to counter the threat.  This manual proposes options for such changes, addressing a very broad variety of topics related to agricultural land management ranging from chemical and physical attributes of soils, soil management concepts, mechanization and tillage, mulching and green manure, eroison control and water resources management, to concepts of participative transfer of technologies.
