Advances in Nitrogen Management for Water Quality 
Edited by Jorge A. Delgado and Ronald F. Follett
2010 E-book

This book is the result of a collaborative effort between SWCS and the Soil Science Society of America. The authors of the 15 chapters review some of the newest advances in nitrogen management and explain how these advances can potentially reduce nitrogen losses to the environment.

Several management practices and principles presented in this book can be applied across continents and/or regions and show that nitrogen use efficiencies can be increased while maintaining agricultural production levels. This book covers a few of the new tools and concepts that can be used to evaluate nitrogen management practices and ultimately to increase nitrogen use efficiencies. It also covers practical applications of new concepts that can be used to improve conservation practices, such as precision conservation (also known as target conservation) in nitrogen management. Finally, this book covers recent advances that will contribute to improvements in nitrogen management for the conservation of water quality and our biosphere.
