Advances in Agronomy continues to be recognized as a leading reference and a first-rate source of the latest and best research in agronomy. As always, the topics covered are varied and exemplary of the panoply of subject matter dealt with by this long-running serial.Volume 67 contains four comprehensive and timely reviews on topics in the crop and soil sciences. Chapter 1 addresses one of the most active areas in agronomic research--precision agriculture. Chapter 2 is a thoughtful review on surface charge and solute interactions in soils. Chapter 3 thoroughly covers advances in the use of molecular genetics to enhance abiotic/edaphic stress resistance in turfgrass. Chapter 4 is a useful review on a topic that is of great interest to agronomists--allelopathy.
