Agrochemicals in Soils contains selected papers from a joint meeting of the Soil Chemistry, Soil Fertility, and Soil Clay Mineralogy Commissions of the International Society of Soil Science, in Jerusalem, Israel. The book is organized into four parts. Parts 1 and 2 deal mostly with the chemical reactions of agrochemicals in the soil. Part 3 explores the movement of agrochemicals in the soil and Part 4 elucidates some aspects of agrochemicals and pollution. Each section begins by one or two invited papers presenting an overview of the topic of the section. Contributed papers follow reporting the results of experimental studies and theoretical analyses of related specific topics. This book will contribute to a better understanding and efficient control of the soil environment.
