Summary Highlighting the vast differences in tropical climate, from hot and humid to cool and arctic, Soils in the Humid Tropics and Monsoon Region of Indonesia explores the climate, soil zones, and altitudinal variation in soil formation. The author explores the changes in geomorphology, especially in climate and vegetation above sea level, that have yielded zones of different soils.

Someoftheseoptions, shownin Fig. 1, are applicable to specific combinations oftopography, soil type, andlevel ofsocio-economic infrastructure development (3, 4). Acid soils.
Winrock International states, "In the humid tropics, the relative importance of acid soils is greatest in Latin America (81%), but also significant in Africa (56%) and Asia (38%)". Traditionally on commercial farms, aluminum toxicity is countered by adding lime to the soil, which neutralizes the acid . Table of Contents. Overview.

acid infertile soils which dominate the humid tropics of Asia. In addition to reviewing the problem, the papers describe some of the technological solutions emerging from the research.
The major outcome from the meeting was the decision by participants to establish ASIALAND-Management of Acid Soils. Rational soil management in the humid tropics Article PDF Available.
Key-words Acid tropical soils, ground lava, CEC with variable charges. chemistry and management of VCS are reviewed. Agricultural ecology, or agroecology, deals in general with the structure and function of agroecosystems at different levels of resolution.
In this text/reference, the authors describe in terms of agroecology the tropical environments of sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin and Central America, focusing on production and management 2/5(1).

Acid sulphate soils are usually left under natural vegetation or used for mangrove forestry.
If water is managed well they can support oil palm and rice. Some other crops grown on acid soils around the world include: rice, cassava, mango, cashew, citrus, pineapple, cowpeas, blueberries and certain grasses.

Phosphorus deficiency and soil acidity are major constraints in strongly acid upland soils in the humid tropics (von Uexkull, ).
This adverse ecosystem is gaining importance for food production due to population pressure. Therefore the need for proper soil fertility management of these soils Cited by: 2. Acid soils occupy approximately 30% or m ha of the world's ice free land area and occur mainly in two global belts where they have developed under udic or ustic moisture regimes.
The northern belt (cold and temperate climate) is dominated by Spodosols, Alfisols, Inceptisols and Histosols Cited by: Properties and Management of Soils in the Tropics - by Pedro A.

SOIL ACIDITY MANAGEMENT 2 The management of acid soils is the major problem area in the humid tropics. The identification and description of a problem area, however, does not justify a major research effort.
An in-depth analysis of our present knowledge of soil processes related to soil acidity and the management of acid soils .Three principal types of Inceptisols occur in the humid tropics.
Aquepts are alluvial soils formed along the flood plains and occupy million ha or % of the humid tropics. Andepts are soils of volcanic origin, young, extremely fertile, and occupy only 12 million ha or % of the humid tropics.cation exchange capacity.
In general, tropical soils are high in sesquioxides1 and already highly acid, so the small contribution from precipitation will have minimal effect.
(Note: this is only true of soil, and many plants are quite sensitive to acid rain.) Causes of soil .
