Glossary of soil science terms by Soil Science Society of America( Book )

54 editions published between 1965 and 2008 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The SSSA has published definitions or glossaries of soil science terms since 1956. These glossaries were developed by various terminology committees of SSSA. New terms were carried as appendices in the five revised editions of the Glossary published from 1971 through 1979, plus a supplement in October 1982. The 1984 revision incorporated a policy that all acceptable terms appear in a single alphabetical list. Appendices would include obsolete terms, tabular information, proposed new terms or guidelines, etc. This revision of the Glossary does not have a separate list of obsolete terms. None of the terms in the Glossary of Soil Science Terms are considered official by the SSSA. They are publishedin an effort to provide a foundation for common understanding in communications covering soil science

J Bethlenfalvay( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

U.S. agrculture faces an unprecendent problem: How to achieve long-tem sustainability in the supply of adequate levels of food and fiber for domestic and international markets, and for humanitariam aid, without degrading the natural environment or resource base, including humans and their communities, upon which agriculture depends. It is the dual nature of this challenge that markes the current situation so daunting. Agricultural scientists must discover and perfect biologically-based systems of farming that are at once productive, profitable for the indefinite future. Most conventional farmes, upon whom adoption of these systems depends, will need a greater measure of confidence in their economic and production characteristcs before making the transition top reduced input approaches
