Developing Rapid Instrumental Methods for Measurement of Soil Quality Parameters
Entry ID: USDA.ARS.NRI.ECL.RapidMeasure

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: (adapted from project description)

Problem: The need to assess impact of conventional and sustainable
agricultural practices on soil quality requires development of routine
procedures that can rapidly measure chemical and biological properties
of soil. Modern instrumental methods for providing detailed
characterization of complex organic materials hold potential for
characterizing the complex ... View entire text
