420 pages, hardbound
For the world’s poorest farmers, soil conservation is a matter of survival. Developing countries are severely affected by drought and soil erosion, and this book focuses on working to increase soil conserving agricultural measures. It also discusses the difficulties of applying conservation techniques, particularly the problems arising from the competing needs for short term gain and long-term survival.
