In a simple and systematic style, this book explains the basic aspects of soils for agricultural production. Beginning with a brief discussion about the earth itself, the book explains the soil forming minerals and rocks with a special reference to rocks of different states of India. It then explains soil genesis, important physical properties of soils, soil water, soil erosion and conservation, chemical and biological properties of soils and soil classification and survey. The book ends with a fairly detailed discussion of the soils of different states of India. With its simple style and systematic approach, this book would be very useful for students of agricultural courses. Extension workers at the grass root level would also find this book to be very helpful.
