Soils and Soil Fertility
Sixth Edition
by Frederick R. Troeh
and Louis M. Thompson

Soils and Soil Fertility provides an overview of soils for those in agriculture and environmental sciences.

Soils and Soil Fertility has been updated throughout and incorporates discussions of GIS, and GPS, humus and its function in soil structure and fertility, soil reclamation for sites contaminated by pesticides or petroleum spills, and advances in the understanding of water flow.

In addition, a new chapter on soil mechanics has been added, explaining the use of soils as foundation and construction material.

Although fully updated, Soils and Soil Fertility retains information on basic topics such as soil formation, soil chemistry, physical properties of soil, organic matter, mineralogy, and soil water movement and storage.

Soils and Soil Fertility includes a detailed discussion of plant nutrients, their deficiency symptoms, and the fertilizers and soil amendments used to correct those deficiencies.
