This is a joint publication of ACIAR and the International Board for Soil Research and Management (IBSRAM). It stems from a workshop held in Kuala Lumpur in early 1989. The papers cover the current research on the management of the acid infertile soils - the Oxisols and Utisols - which dominate the humid tropics of Asia. There are also descriptions of the technological solutions emerging from research into problems of acid soils, and of the ASIALAND-Management of Acid Soils Network initiated at the workshop to foster a more cohesive approach to solving the difficulties facing smallholders in Asia.
