  • Description
  • Contents

This unique, single-source volume features scientific, technical, and practical information on mineral, organic, and synthetic conditioners and their beneficial effects on the soil physical properties that promote optimal plant growth, maximize soil fertility, and enhance biomediation processes. Promoting the synergistic use of various agricultural technologies to manage global concerns of decreasing arable land, the Handbook of Soil Conditioners describes traditional and new products that renew and augment physical properties of soil, including procedures that enhance sustainability presents the most comprehensive discussion to date of new synthetic polymers for curtailing soil erosion, facilitating water infiltration into soil, and expanding crop output examines sources of organic matter and how by-products are prepared as compost for preserving and protecting soil emphasizes the utility of soil conditioners on farms and nonagricultural landscapes reveals how soil conditioners minimize problems of erosion, compaction, sodicity, lack of soil organic matter, crusting, and sealing and more!
