For any measurement program that collects analytical data over a long period of time for comparative purposes, the quality and credibility of those data are critical (Taylor, 1988). It is equally... More > critical that the data can be easily understood by the user. The uses of these data include, but are not limited to, routine soil characterization, special analyses, soil classification, interpretations, and soil genesis and geomorphology studies. Because of the diverse uses of these data, it follows that pedon characterization data, or any soil survey data, are more appropriately used when the operations for collection, analysis, and reporting of these data are well understood. Results differ when different methods are used, even though these methods may carry the same name or concept. Comparison of one bit of data with another is difficult without knowing how both bits were gathered. As a result, operational definitions have been developed and are linked to specific methods.< Less
A Crash Course on How to Grow Beans By Steve Lopez

More > hand grow near the ground surface. Classification of bean varieties is also made on the basis of time at which the pods are picked. 'Shell', 'snap' and 'dry' are the different varieties. The bean plants complete their growth in 60-90 days; number of days for completion of growth varies on the basis of variety being used. This book covers several aspects of growing beans such as: - Nutrition Information - Climate & Growing Conditions - How to Prepare the Garden Soil - How to Plant - How to Water and so much more!
