Legacy soil data have been produced over 70 years in nearly all countries of the world. Unfortunately, data, information and knowledge are still currently fragmented and at risk of getting lost if they remain in a paper format. To process this legacy data into consistent, spatially explicit and continuous global soil information, data are being res...

Article
Full-text available
The need for mathematical modeling of hydraulic properties arises from the fact that, in situ or laboratory measurements of hydraulic properties are time consuming, labour intensive and expensive. The most preferred way to acquire these data is indirect estimation through pedotransfer functions (PTFs) which has become a 'white-hot' topic in the are...
Article
Full-text available
Characterization of soil hydraulic properties is important to environment management; however, it is well recognized that it is laborious, time-consuming and expensive to directly measure soil hydraulic properties. This paper reviews the development of pedotransfer functions (PTFs) used as an alternative tool to estimate soil hydraulic properties d...

Assessment of soil water regimes is an important step in water management in agriculture. The most preferred way to acquire these data is indirect estimation pedotransfer function (PTFs) which has become a 'white-hot' topic in the area of soil science and environmental research. In this context; present study was carried out to develop Point Pedotr...

Shrinking natural resources and high population growth over last 60 years have been a matter of concern for the Indian planners. The situation is getting especially critical for communities solely dependent on common property resources (CPRs) associated with marginal lands, leading to major problems of impov-erishment. The present study was carried...

The sustenance of food and nutritional security are the major challenges of the 21st century. The domestic food production needs to increase per annum at the rate of 2% for cereals and 0.6% for oilseeds and pulses to meet the demand by 2030. The Indo-Gangetic Plains (IGP) and the black soil regions (BSR) are the two major food production zones of t...
