About The Books

Different soils have unique inherent problems that come in the way of achieving the sustainable high productivity. The problems include acidity in hill and laterite soils, nutrient leaching in sandy soils, nutrient fixation in red, laterite and clayey soils, impeded drainage in swell-shrink soils, volatilization losses of N from calcareous soils, Zn deficiency in low organic matter, sandy, high pH and high water table soils, B deficiency in highly calcareous leached acid soils, Fe and Mn deficiency in rice-wheat system largely on sandy soils. The book contains Soil Organic Matter, Soil Water, Soil Chemical Properties, anagement Strategies to Reduce Soil Acidity, Soil Minerals and Plant Nutrition, Soil Biota, Influence of Soils on Human Health, Soil-Nutrient Relationships, Soil Fertility, ertilizer Application, Cation Exchange Capacity, Fertilizer Applications on the Soil Fertility, Organic Manures and Fertilizers for Soil Health, Manure as a Source of Excellent Fertilizer, Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium Fertilizers for CultivatiParticipated in seminar / symposia / workshop / conference on, Poultry Litter, Soil Physical Analysis, Fertility Management, Principles of Manuring, Manure Management Systems, Vermicomposting, Soil Fertility and Nutrient Use, Nutrient Cycling and Maintaining Soil Fertility, Rhizosphere Interactions, and Gaining Water and Nutrient Uptake by Plant Roots The book narrates key challenges and opportunities in sustainable soil resource management vis-à- vis crop production sector in the next two decades for developing an appropriate in shaping the future of soil research in India for sustainable growth of agriculture.
