Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195581865, Paperback)This introduction to basic soil science theory places the study of familiar topics in the context of New Zealand--a country especially dependent on the proper use and maintenance of its soil resources. The text covers all essential areas: pedology, soil chemistry and fertility, soil physics, and land use management. Many specific examples are given from the rich heritage of New Zealand agriculture and horticulture. Throughout, soil science theory is linked with practical management and fertilizer recommendations. While the main emphasis is on soil conditions affecting plant growth, other subjects, such as the distribution of soil varieties and their influence on environmental quality, are also discussed. The book would make useful supplementary reading for students in soil science courses.
