Sustainable Agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Role of Soil Productivity. The primary aim of this book is to provide a general outline of the various multifaceted factors, particularly soil productivity that influence sustainable agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa.
There is growing need for a well-documented information source on the interrelationship between sustainable agriculture and long-term soil productivity, and the author treats all relevant factors involved. In this publication the main thrust of emphasis is on technically feasible, economically profitable, environmentally sustainable and socially acceptable means of increasing and maintaining soil productivity on a long-term basis.
Issues such as those related to the impact of desertification and soil degradation, the role of biotechnology, integrated fertilizer management, the role of organic matter and appropriate soil management strategies are also discussed. The author, who has an experience of more than 20 years in Nigeria and Rwanda, calls also for a range of institutional matters: active environmental pressure groups in every country to monitor activities related to environment, and effective international linkages among research institutions.

Approaches for Tropical and Subtropical Agriculture. Silva and R. Uchida, editors. Agriculture in the Hawaiian Islands has a history that is somewhat unique, but it has also strong similarities to agriculture elsewhere in the Pacific, and in many other sub tropical locations as well. The islands contain 11 of the 12 soil orders of the USDA Soil Taxonomy, and a variation in temperature from warm subtropical lowlands to temperate conditions at the highest elevations. These varied soil and climate conditions complicate methodological approaches to agriculture.
This book presents information on how soils provide nutrients to plants and how soils can be managed to improve their nutritional status for plant growth. The book is intended to help growers and extension personnel understand how soil and plant tissue analyses are interpreted to diagnose plant nutrition problems and how soil management recommendations are developed to prevent or correct those problems. Although the details discussed are about soils and crops found in the Hawaiian Islands, the general information on soil conditions and nutrient management are applicable in many other regions of the world, where plants, soils and climate are similar to those of Hawaii.

Technical Engineering and Design Guides as adapted from the U. Army Corps of Engineers, no. American Society of Civil Engineers, , p. To provide accurate knowledge of the subsurface conditions, as well as the physical and engineering properties of foundation materials, soil sampling operations are routinely conducted to determine those conditions that affect the safety, cost-effectiveness, and design of a proposed engineering project.
This manual presents a summary of commonly accepted soil sampling practices and procedures to assist geotechnical personnel performing actual field studies. It provides both technical guidance for conducting soil sampling operations, and the best methods for handling and storage of samples obtained in support of the investigations. The principles, equipment, procedures, and limitations for obtaining, handling, and preserving soil samples are discussed.
Since the highest quality samples are often obtained at the least cost by using a variety of equipment and techniques, this manual surveys the different devices and techniques that have been developed for drilling and sampling geotechnical materials ranging from soil to rocks. The manual further suggests the various types of sampling devices best suited to obtain samples of various soil types encountered during geotechnical investigations. Of special interest are the parts about the equipment and procedures for undisturbed and disturbed soil sampling in borings; sampling frozen soils; underwater sampling of soils; handling and storage of samples and sampling records; and backfilling boreholes and excavations.
E-mail: marketing asce. Pesticides, Pollutants, Fertilizers and Trees: their role in forests and amenity woodlands. Forestry Series, E. Harris, editor. The objective of the Forestry Series is to make available specialist texts in developing areas of science and technology tailored to particular but limited markets. The present book in this series is a comprehensive account of the state of knowledge of the use of chemicals in forestry and the many issues associated with this. Though primarily concerned with the situation in Britain, both the facts presented and the issues discussed are relevant throughout the world and are of interest to foresters, land managers and tree growers everywhere.
To meet wider needs, scientific facts and concepts are expressed as far as possible in terms understandable to the lay reader. The first part of the book starts with ethical issues before going on to laying out the chemical and legal frameworks and the safety system, summarizing these in a chapter in integrated forest protection. In the core of the book, pests of all forms, nutrients and fertilizers are discussed in a way that leaves little of these complex issues untouched, before going on to a comprehensive account of the present knowledge of pollutants and forest health.
In the final chapter, the author returns to ethical issues and emphasis that if our woodlands and forests, as well as the ecosystems surrounding them, are to be sustainable the opportunities provided today by technological advances must be handled carefully, responsibly and with understanding. The text is supported by over references.

In many places in the world, efforts are underway to improve the living and working conditions of farming communities. It is becoming clear that the active interest and initiative of the farmers is crucial for the success of such efforts.
The present report is intended for development practitioners, extensionists and leaders or pioneers in farming communities, to inform them about the experiences and initiatives of farmers with conservation agriculture in Santa Catarina State, Brazil.
On the basis of several local initiatives, inventions and developments, there have been widespread improvements in soil management in various parts of the state, resulting in lower costs and improved returns, combined with conservation and improvement of the soil resources. While these developments cannot be simply applied elsewhere, the methods and strategies may well inspire others to adapt and modify them for the application in their own environments.

E-mail: publications-sales fao. The European Soil Information System. World Soil Resources Reports This publication contains the proceedings of a Technical Consultation, held in Rome, September The consultation, convened to consider the issues related to soil information systems in Europe, was organized by FAO and the European Commission. The participants were experts in the field of soil information and they made brief statements on the status of soil information in their respective countries.
More detailed country reports are included in this publication. Important items discussed were the harmonization of the concepts underlying mapping scales, procedures and classification, and interpretation and the issues related to data ownership and availability of the products. The purpose of the meeting was not merely to promote the establishment of a European Soil Information System, permitting easy inter-European exchange of data and experience, but also to facilitate its practical use to solve problems both national and continental, and encourage the exchange of experience with such activities.
An important by-product would be the example to other countries, particularly those in the developing world, on how well utilized soil information can help to solve national and global problems in a rational and cost-effective manner. Besides the country reports, the publication contains the texts of the two keynote papers, the conclusions reached at the meeting and the recommendations. An important issue is carbon sequestration retaining in the geosphere the carbon that would otherwise escape into the atmosphere. Carbon sequestration can occur in several sites: biomass, forests, wetlands, geologic formations and soils, among others.
This publication contains the result of a study on the origin and background of the carbon sequestration options and the CDM.
