Although fully updated, the text retains essential information on basic topics such as soil formation, soil chemistry, physical properties of soil, organic matter, mineralogy, and soil water movement and storage. It includes a detailed discussion of plant nutrients, their deficiency symptoms, and the fertilizers and soil amendments used to correct those deficiencies.
Troeh and Thompson make a special effort to provide a uniquely broad perspective, complementing the varied backgrounds and interests of today′s students. Instructors and students will appreciate this broad–based approach and through coverage.
