Basics of Soil Science
What you'll learn
- On completing this course you will get a clear concept about soils and the various branches of this science. It will lay the foundation for more advanced topics and higher level courses in soil science
- School level chemistry, physics and biology is all you need. Curiosity to learn about how soils support life on our planet
This course teaches the fundamental concepts of soil science. It includes 8 major topics - soil chemistry, soil mineralogy, soil organic matter, soil physics, soil biology, soil fertility, soil nutrient management, soil genesis & classification. This course will provide a basic understanding of all the key concepts and terminologies of every aspect of soil.
Who this course is for:
- Students aspiring to study agriculture or environmental sciences, farmers wanting to broaden their knowledge about soils,
I am a PhD with 30 years research experience in Agricultural Chemistry & Soil Science. My primary areas of research are the development of environment-friendly fertilizers, soil mineralogy & chemistry, thermodynamics and theoretical chemistry. I have guided over a dozen students for their PhD degrees. I am currently the Director of a research institute where we conduct research on topics related to agriculture, environment and chemistry.
