This handbook offers effective strategies to modify and adjust crop production processes to decrease the toxicity of soil contaminants, balance soil pH, improve root growth and nutrient uptake, and increase agricultural yield. The Handbook of Soil Acidity provides methods to, measure soil acidity, determine the major causes of soil acidification, calculate acidification rates for specific crop sequences, identify high-risk areas for soil acidification, and model acidification phenomena. This is an essential resource for plant, crop, soil, and environmental scientists, plant and crop physiologists, botanists, agronomists, agriculturists, and upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and continuing-education students in these disciplines.
The text includes very well written papers which present the information in a clear and concise style with clear tables and figures. The editor is to be congratulated on bringing together a group of authors who have managed to produce a text which presents a reasonably comprehensive coverage of the subject in a style which should be accessible to most undergraduate and graduate students of Soil Science and Agricultural Science. - Experimental Agriculture
