The chemical composition of the soil and fertilizers, and the way in which plants and microorganisms interact with the soil and soil microorganisms can be prime determinants of crop production. Indeed, the cycles of these chemical elements are basic components of understanding all ecosystems. This book, a companion volume to Stevenson's Humus Chemistry provides an exhaustive overview of the inorganic chemical activity taking place in soil.
