The well being of the humans including animals depend upon very
much on how the soil productivity is maintained without ecosystems
degradation. Most likely soil can efficiently sustain humanity with
food, fibre, feed to animals and clean environmental maintenance
only when it is considered and managed from the holistic and
ecosystem points of view. Plants need at least 16 essential
elements for their normal growth and to complete their life. The
soil testing provides the status of the nutrients determined in the
laboratory for the application of appropriate rate of fertilizers
to eliminate the nutrients limiting for production. The soil
testing along with plant analysis gives the true status of plant
nutrients affected by soil properties to take the proper care for
the plant growth. Our available water resources are diminishing and
getting polluted with excess use of fertilizers and pesticides
which are ultimately affecting the environment, food produced and
water quality. The purpose of this book 'Soil Testing and Analysis'
is i to provide the vital plant nutrients functions for which soil
testing is to be made; ii to determine the nutrient status of the
soil with appropriate methods, measurements and criteria for
interpreting those assessments; iii to analyze the appropriate
parts of the plant samples for nutrient elements with available
methods of analysis; iv to analyze the important water quality
parameters with interpretations; and v to prepare the soil, plant
and water samples for the analysis of pesticide residues with the
different available methods. This is a comprehensive presentation
of useful information for the scientific and technical personals
involved in such types of analysis.
