Chemical Features of Soil: Advanced Crop and Soil Science. A Course of Study.
Miller, Larry E.
The course of study represents the fifth of six modules in advanced crop and soil science and introduces the agriculture student to chemical features of the soil. Upon completing the four day lesson, the student will be able to: (1) list macro- and micro-nutrients, (2) define pH and its effect on plants, (3) outline Cation Exchange of the soil, (4) understand fertilizer production, (5) recognize plants exhibiting nutrient deficiencies, (6) interpret information on a fertilizer tag or bag. The course outline suggests teaching procedures, behavioral objectives, teaching aids and references, problems, a summary, and evaluation. Following the lesson plan, pages are coded for use as handouts and overhead transparencies. A materials source list for the complete soil module is included. (MW)
