Thoroughly updated and revised, this second edition of the bestselling Soil Sampling and Methods of Analysis presents several new chapters in the areas of biological and physical analysis and soil sampling. Reflecting the burgeoning interest in soil ecology, new contributions describe the growing number and assortment of new microbiological techniques, describe in-depth methods, and demonstrate new tools that characterize the dynamics and chemistry of soil organic matter and soil testing for plant nutrients. A completely new section devoted to soil water reviews up-to-date field- and laboratory-based methods for saturated and unsaturated soil hydraulic properties. Retaining the easy-to-follow, “cookbook” style of the original, this second edition provides a compilation of soil analytical techniques that are fast, straightforward, and relatively easy-to-use. Heavily referenced, peer-reviewed contributions from approximately 150 specialists make this a practical manual and resource handbook that describes a wide array of methods, both conventional and cutting-edge, for analyzing the chemical, biological, biochemical, and physical properties of many different soil types. Including several “primer” chapters that cover the overall principles and concepts behind the latest techniques, the book presents sufficient detail on the materials and procedures to characterize the potential and limitation of each method. It covers recent improvements in methodology, outlines current methods, and characterizes the best methods available for selecting the appropriate analysis technique. Promoting the research and practical application of findings in soil science, Soil Sampling and Methods of Analysis, Second Edition continues to be the most current, detailed, comprehensive tool for researchers and practitioners working with soil.

As with the highly popular original, this new edition of Soil Sampling, Preparation, and Analysis provides students with an exceptionally clear description of the sampling and analysis methods most commonly used in modern soil laboratories around the world. What sets it apart as the first choice of professors is the grounding it offers in fundamental principles, professional protocols, and specific procedures. What makes it especially popular with students is that it spares them from having to tote large volumes for the sake of a page or two. Fully revised to introduce the latest advances, the text is lucidly illustrated with original results garnered from years of hands-on experiments conducted by the author and his students. In response to requests from active users of the first edition, these new features have been added: § Three new chapters on soil and plant test methods § A focus on testing and analysis limited to edaphology, as opposed to edaphology and pedology as a whole in the ecosystem § Information and insight reflecting the author’s expertise on electron microscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance § Extensive revisions and expansion to include recent advances and shifting interests in the field Soil Sampling, Preparation, and Analysis is divided into three sections: the first covers principles of soil sampling, sources of errors, and variability of results; the second explains common procedures for extraction and analysis in soil plant testing; and the last covers instrumentation. While Professor Tan designed and further honed the book to serve the practical needs of students, with this volume he also provides them with an essential reference that will continue to serve them throughout their training and into their careers.

Wide coverage of soils and perennial cropping systems in the tropicsSynthesis of decades of researchChallenges assumptions on the benefits of plantations for soil fertilityIt is generally assumed that soil fertility decline is widespread in the tropics and that this is largely associated with annual cropping and subsistence farming. In contrast, perennial plant cover (as in plantation agriculture) provides better protection for the soil.This book reviews these concepts, focusing on soil chemical changes under different land-use systems in the tropics. These include perennial crops, annual crops and forest plantations. Two case studies, on sisal plantations in Tanzania and sugar cane in Papua New Guinea, are presented for detailed analysis. The author demonstrates that soil fertility decline is also a problem on plantations.

For more than 30 years, soil testing has been widely used as a basis for determining lime and fertilizer needs. Today, a number of procedures are used for determining everything from soil pH and lime requirement, to the level of extractable nutrient elements. And as the number of cropped fields being tested increases, more and more farmers and growers will come to rely on soil test results. But if soil testing is to be an effective means of evaluating the fertility status of soils, standardization of methodology is essential. No single test is appropriate for all soils. Soil Analysis Handbook of Reference Methods is a standard laboratory technique manual for the most commonly used soil analysis procedures. First published in 1974, this Handbook has changed over the years to reflect evolving needs. New test methods and modifications have been added, as well as new sections on nitrate, heavy metals, and quality assurance plans for agricultural testing laboratories. Compiled by the Soil and Plant Analysis Council, this latest edition of Soil Analysis Handbook of Reference Methods also addresses the major methods for managing plant nutrition currently in use in the United States and other parts of the world. For soil scientists, farmers, growers, or anyone with an interest in the environment, this reference will prove an invaluable guide to standard methods for soil testing well into the future. Features

Standard Methods For Analysis Of Soil Plant And Water

Standard Methods For Analysis Of Soil Plant And Water

Land, water and plants are of crucial importance to the mankind. While per capita availability of land and water is decreasing due to burgeoning population, degradation is resulting in declining productivity per unit of these resources. This degradation is impacting the environment and the quality of the field crops consumed by the humans and the animals raising serious concerns on the health of the consumers. A concerted effort is being made to keep track of the health of these resources by Central Water Commission, Central Pollution Control Board and many state government agencies through limited monitoring networks. Soil/water health cards are being distributed to the farming community to keep track of the health of these resources. Many of these agencies feel handicapped not only in soil, water and plants analysis but also in interpreting the analytical results for practical use. It is especially true for the salt affected soils and waters, which require special attention and management to achieve potential productivity. The current book compiles and puts together the most important aspects of the existing knowledge on sampling procedures and physical, chemical and biological determinations needed to monitor the soil health and water quality. Besides procedures of general interest in agriculture, all analysis procedures needed for the reclamation and management of salt affected soils and/or poor quality waters have been included. Unlike other books of this nature, the current book includes sections where exhaustive interpretations of the analytical results and/or their applications have been given, in many cases with relevant examples. The readers, therefore, would be able to understand and proceed from the most preliminary step of taking soil/water samples to most advanced analytical techniques to diagnose the problems and to take appropriate measures to reverse the degradation processes. We believe that this book is an improvement over the existing books and is a useful addition to the literature on this subject. The information contained in this book would facilitate the access to and implementation of the knowledge by the scientists engaged in research in the basic streams and agricultural sciences. It would also prove to be a useful reference book to professional students and personals engaged in the NGOs and the state laboratories associated with soil, water and plant analysis work.
