Soils reflect the primary climatological, geological, biological, and topographical conditions. The properties of the soil that regulate water and gas exchange with the atmosphere and influence plant growth have important effects on the environment.

In this course, participants will understand the qualities of soil, its relationship with landscape and how they work together to create productive terrains. It also discusses the distribution of soil resources as controlled by climate, landform, topography, hydrology, geology, biology and age of the land surface.
