Soil Knowledge

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Soil being a crypt-resource, that is a hidden resource, it is considered entirely important only when environmental disasters happen. Therefore, it would be necessary to change the paradigm that ties the man to the soil, trying to consider it as a known resource to be managed and protected always and everywhere. The soil should not be manipulated, but it should be managed. To achieve this aim, we need to know it completely. An initial identikit includes salient features that historically the men always looked at: a good depth, a balanced texture, a reaction of the soil tending to neutral, a good stiffness, a good level of organic matter and elements of fertility.
