The effect of Minjingu Phosphate Rock and triple superphosphate on soil phosphorus fractions and maize yield in Western Kenya -- Organochlorine pesticide residues in sediments and waters from cocoa producing areas of Ondo State, Southwestern Nigeria -- Carbon and water in Upper Montane soils and their influences on vegetation in Southern Brazil -- Rapid screening of Berseem clover (Trifolium alexandrinum) endophytic bacteria for rice plant seedlings growth-promoting agents -- Remote sensing of soil moisture -- Response of cold-tolerant Aspergillus spp. to solubilization of Fe and A1 phosphate in presence of different nutritional sources -- Maya and WRB soil classification in Yucatan, Mexico: differences and similarities -- Prediction of soil organic carbon for Ethiopian highlands using soil spectroscopy -- Assessing sediment-nutrient export rate and soil degradation in Mai-Negus Catchment, Northern Ethiopia -- The variations in the soil enzyme activity, protein expression, mircobial biomass, and community structure of soil contaminated by heavy metals -- Spatiotemporal changes of rainfall erosivity in Loess Plateau, China -- Predicting saturated hydraulic conductivity by artificial intelligence and regression models -- Variability of soil physical properties in a clay-loam soil and its implication on soil management practices -- Significance of some soil amendments and phosphate dissolving bacteria to enhance the availability of phosphate in calcereous soil -- Passive and active restoration strategies to activate soil biogeochemical nutrient cycles in a degraded tropical dry land -- Application of digital image cross correlation to study sinkhole collapse -- Effects of unburned lime on soil pH and base cations in acidic soil -- Diversity of Rhizobium leguminosarum from pea fields in Washington State.
Summary: "Soil science is crucial in today's time. It seeks to answer to the ever growing consumption and need of food. It studies all the aspects of soil and seeks to find solutions to increase productivity. This book attempts to understand the multiple branches that fall under the vast and varied field of soil science. The research in this field is constantly guided by the challenges and needs of civilization. This book aims to collate such researches and data and help readers understand the solutions and future growth of this discipline."--Back cover
