Due to the swift bring up in global inhabitants and bettering residing criteria, the worldwide agriculture zone is confronting with demanding situations for the sustainability of agricultural construction and of our environment. extensive high-yield agriculture is sometimes depending on addition of fertilizers (synthetic chemical compounds, animal manure, etc.). although, non-point nutrient losses from agricultural fields because of fertilization may perhaps adversely impression the surroundings. elevated wisdom on plant nutrient chemistry is needed for making improvements to usage potency and minimizing loses from either inorganic and natural nutrient assets. For this objective, the publication consists of nineteen chapters that spotlight contemporary learn actions in utilized nutrient chemistry aimed toward sustainable agriculture and atmosphere. themes of curiosity comprise, yet aren't constrained, to speciation, quantification, and interactions of assorted plant nutrition and appropriate contributories in manure, soil, and vegetation.
