About this book Forest soil characteristics are not only unique but their interpretation also differs from cropland soils. Just as there are diverse forest types, there are many soil variants that need different management. Today, forest plantations are being intensively managed for profitable timber, pulpwood and energy production. Handbook for saline soil management Editors: R. Vargas, E.I. Pankova, S.A. Balyuk, P.V. Krasilnikov and G.M. Khasankhanova Published by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and Lomonosov Moscow State University. pH measurement. pH measurement is a significant diagnosis of salt-affected soils but dependence of pH value upon the soil-water ratio of the suspension in which it is measured is frequently ignored in the reports and pH data are given with no indication of the dilution factor used. Since soil siuveys ore based on all of the characteristics of soils that influence their use and management, interpretations are needed for each of the many uses. Among these interpretations the grouping of soils into capability units, subclasses, and classes is one of the most important. This grouping serves as an introduction of the soil mop.
