This book presents a comprehensive overview of soil quality and pesticide residue analysis in the field of forage science. It brings together a range of laboratory methods and techniques from various sources and aims to provide as much information as possible. The book covers the latest methods and interpretations, from sampling to testing platforms, and provides detailed testing protocols and quality assurance protocols. It is particularly useful for young researchers, scientists, and students pursuing M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in soil science and pesticide residue analysis.

Mahendra Prasad is currently working as a scientist (Soil Science) at ICAR- Indian Grassland and Fodder Research Institute, Jhansi. He obtained his master's and doctorate from Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi.

Pushpendra Koli is an ARS qualified scientist who specializes in Agricultural Chemicals. At present, he is working as scientist in ICAR-Indian Grassland and Fodder Research Institute, Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh, India
