Answer :

Soil related problems and methods to control those problems are listed below —

1. Soil is dry (hydrophobic soil)


To overcome this problem, add organic matter in the dry soil. Remove unwanted weeds from the soil. And give a regular dig to your farm.


2. Soil is wet


To overcome this problem do not water the soil for few days. And cover the soil with dry organic matter. We can also dig trenches to drain excess water.


3. Soil is acidic


Addition of Limestone can increase the pH of the soil.


4. Soil is alkalie


Addition of acidic organic matters or aluminum sulphate can decrease pH of the soil.
