Chemistry of Soil and Agrochemicals

It’s a great pleasure for us to present this book Chemistry of Soil and Agrochemicals (CH 610 (A), Semester VI) for T.Y.B.Sc. students of the Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune. This book is written as per the revised syllabus of Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune to be implemented from June 2021.
We have tried to explain the concepts and information in lucid language so that students could understand it easily. Many senior faculty members have inspired us to perform this duty. We feel it’s not a new creations but presentation in simple form for the better understanding of students.
