There are few books in soil science which satisfies the requirements of students who want to pursue career in pedology, particularly preparing for competitive examinations. This book is designed to satisfy their needs and is presented in a systematic manner to understand every fundamental aspect related to agropedology. This book covers all the basic concepts of agropedology viz., rocks and minerals, weathering, soil forming factors and processes, soil classification, taxonomy and remote sensing. Some of the new topics like remote sensing, geographic information system and GPS were also included. This book will be very much useful for those students preparing for NET, ARS, JRF, SRF and PG and Ph.D. entrance examinations.
