Synopsis: Save time and effort with this practical guide to all aspects of water and soil conservation

Soil and Water Conservation Handbook is a concise, compact encyclopedia of the policies, practices, conditions, and terms related to soil and/or water conservation. This handy A-to-Z guide contains descriptions of more than 700 entries, presented in a practical, non-technical format that’s suitable for beginners as well as experts. It’s a ready reference source of information for researchers, extension agents, policymakers, academics, and anyone else concerned about soil and water conservation.

Internationally acclaimed soil scientist Dr. Paul Unger has called on his 35 years experience researching the effects of tillage, crop residues, and soil management as well as his observations in more than 40 countries to assemble a resource on soil and water conservation that's concise but comprehensive. Sources for the book’s main and secondary entries many of which are cross-referenced include technical journals, bulletins, reports, farm magazines, commercial leaflets, books, and Internet resources. Soil and Water Conservation Handbook also includes a detailed table of contents and an index, allowing quick and easy access to any entry.

Soil and Water Conservation Handbook includes entries that cover:

  • climate characteristics
  • cropping systems and sequences
  • erosion types
  • human factors
  • management issues
  • planting and seeding methods
  • crop residue types and management practices
  • soil and land conditions
  • tillage methods
  • water control practices
  • and much more
Soil and Water Conservation Handbook is an invaluable reference for researchers, agricultural extension agents, Natural Resource Conservation Service personnel, educators and students, land managers, and farmers.

Review: A STATE-OF-THE KNOWLEDGE COMPENDIUM OF BASIC PRINCIPLES AND TERMINOLOGY pertinent to

prominent environmental issues of soil erosion by water and wind, surface runoff, dissolved

and suspended loads, non-point source pollution. . . . AN EXCELLENT REFERENCE SOURCE for

soil and water conservation practices. . . . COMPREHENSIVE, ALL ENCOMPASSING, UP-TO-DATE,

AND READER FRIENDLY. -- Rattan Lal, President-Elect Soil Science Society of America, Professor, Director, Carbon Management and Sequestration Center, The Ohio State University

A VALUABLE AND UNIQUE BOOK. . . . A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION to the literature that I am

going to place on the top of my desk right beside my Webster's dictionary. . . . I RECOMMEND

THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE INVOLVED IN AGRICULTURE--policy makers, teachers, researchers,

engineers. . . . A TREASURE of his lifetime's knowledge shared with us. . . . Has opened my

eyes to a wide view of agriculture and the many definitions that are possible. THIS BOOK

WILL BECOME A CLASSIC. -- M.B. Kirkham, PhD, MS, BA, Professor, Department of Agronomy, Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas

AN UNUSUALLY CLEAR AND INFORMATIVE BOOK. . . . I think the book is A GOLD MINE of

information based on field work carried out over the years by Paul W. Unger. . . . A

fortunate combination of the author's clearheaded, analytical approach, sense for

integration, and direct access to, and contact with a wide range of different agro

ecological and socioeconomic contexts. . . . Is addressed to readers who want to know how to

make and maintain our agriculture a sustainable and safe set of activities as the demands

increase and how this can be achieved without causing even more damage to soils and, by

association, the quantity, regularity and cleanliness of water supplies. -- JOSÉ (Pepe) R. BENITES, PhD, FAO Representative in Argentina

An excellent encyclopedia of such for any college-level holding strong in conservation

issues and science. Here are over 700 entries provided in a non-technical format suitable

for beginners, covering policies and agendas in agriculture and horticulture. AN EXCELLENT

PICK ANY COLLEGE-LEVEL AGRICULTURAL OR HORTICULTURAL HOLDING SHOULD HAVE. -- The Midwest Book Review

In this compendium, Dr. Unger has compiled and explained a comprehensive list of terms,

practices, policies, and conditions dealing with soil and water conservation. The purpose of

this handbook is not to recommend any specific practice for a particular site or condition,

but to provide basic information regarding the practice. This information WILL BE USEFUL TO

POLICY MAKERS, RESEARCHERS, EXTENSION WORKERS AND OTHERS FOR HELPING THEM UNDERSTAND THE

IMPLICATIONS, COMPLEXITIES, AND CONFUSIONS SOMETIMES EXPRESSED. -- B.A. Stewart, PhD, Director, Dryland Agriculture Institute and Distinguished Professor of Agriculture, West Texas A&M University, Canyon, Texas
