    Fields of study. Soil occupies the pedosphere, one of Earth's spheres that the geosciences use to organize the Earth conceptually. This is the conceptual perspective of pedology and edaphology, the two main branches of soil gy is the study of soil in its natural setting. Edaphology is the study of soil in relation to soil-dependent uses. This book is written in simple language backed with illustrations, problems, case studies, and tables etc. is mostly based on the examples of the Indian literature on soils. It has attempted to cover all possible sub-disciplines of the soil science/5(22).
