About this book

Extended papers from a 1994 symposium held as part of the 15th Congress of Soil Science, Mexico.

'The book is highly recommended for advanced students of agriculture as well as for agroculturalists, agrochemists, plant breeders and also also who are interested in various aspects of conservation and improving the natural resources with special reference to problems that are close to sustainable agriculture.' Acta Physiologiae Plantarum, 18:3 (1996)
