Principles and Practice of Soil Science The Soil as a Natural Resource
White, RE
Blackwell Oxford 1997 3rd Edition
24 Cm Softcover There is a growing need for information about soils, their behaviour and their influence on land use. This book traces the fundamental contribution that soil science has made to many of the applied sciences associated with management of the environment; this is even more important today than when the first edition was published. Soil scientists are increasingly pressed to find ways of both producing food and fibre crops more efficiently, in terms of both yields per hectare and value of product relative to cost of input, while preserving the intrinsic value of the soil resource for posterity. This third edition covers all aspects of soil science, the soil habitat, processes in the soil environment and utilization of soils. It also tackles the contemporary problem of the fate of toxic chemicals used in agriculture and their effect on the environment. Corners bumped cover marks caused by some one resting their notepaper & writing - grrrr! 348pp & a kilo packed for post.  Good
