Soil Science Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Soil Acidity
edited by Zdenko Rengel

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
  • Model acidification phenomena

Handbook of Soil Acidity 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.

Contents

  1. Soil Acidification: The World Story
  2. Role of Carbon, Nitrogen, and Sulfur Cycles in Soil Acidification
  3. Role of Plant Cation/Anion Uptake Ratio in Soil Acidification
  4. Acid Inputs into the Soils from Acid Rain
  5. Quantifying the Acid Balance for Broad-Acre Agricultural Systems
  6. Modeling Acidification Processes in Agricultural Systems
  7. Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Soil Acidification Risk Assessments
  8. Micro- and Macro-Scale Heterogeneity of Soil Acidity
  9. Measurements of H+ Fluxes and Concentrations in the Rhizosphere
  10. Toxic Elements in Acid Soils: Chemistry and Measurement
  11. Using Lime to Ameliorate Topsoil and Subsoil Acidity
  12. Role of Organic Matter in Alleviating Soil Acidity
  13. Fertility Management of Tropical Acid Soils for Sustainable Crop Production
  14. Role of the Genotype in Tolerance to Acidity and Aluminum Toxicity
  15. Managing Soil Acidification Through Crop Rotations in Southern Australia
  16. Managing Acidification and Acidity in Forest Soils
