Soil is a wonderful gift of nature to humankind, but limited, non-renewable and non elastic resource.

Agricultural technologies that led to Green Revolution resulted in the degradation of this precious natural resource owing to over exploitation under intensive farming coupled with mis-management. The soil quality has under gone as serious damage leading to a decline in crop production and factor productivity. In the present book, entitled "Management Soil Quality for Sustainable Agriculture", an attempt has been made to compile the information on concept and indicators of soil quality and its relevance in sustainable crop production.  The book also embodies information on improving various parameters of soil quality. Few pages in the book on methods for assessing physical, chemical and biological parameters of oil quality will be helpful in monitoring the status of soil health. The chapters in the book have been contributed by eminent scientists engaged in basic and applied research of Soil Science. The book will be very useful to the scientists engaged in soil and crop production research, extension workers, students and farmers.
