We are studying soils which support life and food production. Our primary disciplines are "Properties, genesis, classification and utilization of volcanic ash soils" and "Soil-plant interactions". Recent research topics are
1)Roles of aluminum-humus complexes in Andosols,
2)Changes in element concentration of tephra with Andosol formation,
3)Soil regions map of Japan based on a reclassification,
4)Phosphorus foraging root growth of Brassica plants, and
5)Formation of vivianite on paddy-rice roots.
