Agronomist and farming expert Dale Strickler presents the science of soil, along with proven methods for restoring depleted soil.

This in-depth guide shows farmers, ranchers, gardeners, and anyone who works with soil how to turn degraded soil into rich, productive ground—a process essential for supporting human life and repairing the environment.

Strickler explains how soil has become more and more degraded over time and the dire consequences of growing food in poor soil.

Addressing the chemical, physical, and biological principles behind soil function, he dives deep into actual farming practices from around the world that can be used to regenerate soil, techniques and strategies for remediating contaminated soil, and agriculture systems both past and present that function to build soil.
