How would soil texture affect the nutrients in soil? What would be its impact on crop production? (AS 2)
Soil texture is the main physical property of the soil. Soil texture tells us about the size of particle. It influences soil structure, nutrient holding capacity, water content and organic matter of content of the soil.
It regulates and affect air and water movement in the soil and thus, soil ability to function.
It tells us about the nutrients which are necessary for plants growth such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Soils which contain 30% or more organic matter are considered organic soil; all other soils are identified as mineral soils.
soil texture directly influences the plant growth Thus influence the crop production.
