    The objective of this book is to make and to analyze BRIS soils improvement for sustainable crop production from perspectives of soil science. This book is expected to provide a useful guidance for beneficiaries and stakeholders in landuse planning of BRIS soils which are the most appropriate, integrated, site-specific as well as implementable. Based on the results of research and literature review, it can be summarized some conclusions as follows: 1) BRIS soils has two main functions, i.e. ecological functions (biomass production, filtering, buffering and transforming and biodiversity providers) and non-ecological functions (physical media, sources of energy and raw materials) 2) Landuse conflicts are natural, inevitable, rational, reasonable and even desirable as well as planned under certain conditions. We need only to keep "such conflicts in harmony and balanced condition" in order to support human life 3) The common causes of the conflict are induced by “dominant differences” in terms of the "Information Sufficiency" and "Sources of information". Both components will give character and view specifically in terms of perception, main goals, value and belief, mindset, competition of scarce land resources, and rejection (refusal) or loss of recognition or status 4) Three tips of BRIS soils management priorities for sustainable crop production, namely: (1) Adjust with the Nature, not Against the Nature, (2) Cultivations of BRIS Soils is recommended if We Have Already Complete Information, and (3) Completing Information about BRIS Soils 5) BRIS soils improvement for sustainable crop production can be operationally done through: (1) Soil and Water Technology, (2) Land Resource Analyses and Planning, and (3) Land and Water Management 6) Package of land resource management can be implemented with two ways, namely the development of sensitive models and analysis systems, modeling, and model simulation. It is suggested to make some measurable indicators for strategy and package of landuse planning for BRIS soils, including interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches bringing together technical, ecological, cultural, social and economic sciences. Indicators based on this approach can bridge between science and technology on one side and stakeholders, decision making and politics on the other side, thus sharing knowledge between those who have it and those who need it.
