Soil Science and Management, fourth edition emphasizes the human interaction with and affect on soils, rather than treating the soil as an independent element. Comprehensive, yet not intimidating, you will find this text has been revised to encompass more ecological themes within the established topics of soil science and use. Non-technical, and easy-to-understand, the fourth edition of this popular text teaches the essentials of soils from the perspective of farmers, horticulturists, environmentalists, and others who are concerned about how soils work and how they are used most effectively. An emphasis on management and the sustainable use of soils and water resources make it especially relevant to these audiences. Nutrient management, best practices and relevant legal issues and government programs make this text a practical application for agricultural and horticultural students.
