2021-4-19  Lab Report: Soil Properties. Soil. It can be defined as the upper layer that covers the earth’s surface all around. It is made up of the mineral particles, water, humus and air that circulates in it. The composition of the soil enables it to hold plants over it besides giving the organisms a suitable place to live in (Young, 2012).

Understanding the relationship between soil

2020-1-27  Generally, soil physical properties play an important role in various plant-soil interactions and processes and remain to be fluctuating with changes in topography, climate, and ecosystem (Phogat et al. 2015). The minimum bulk density of soil in dry mixed forest is influenced by the diverse flora of the forest type resulting in diverse litter composition of the same.

Understanding the relationship between soil

All litter nutrients, except total P, have their significant positive correlation with soil pH. Total P, C, and N of litter have their significant positive correlation with total soil organic carbon. This indicates that litter chemistry and soil properties have specific relation among them despite unique species composition in each forest community.

The effect of soil properties on soil erosion is relatively well understood, and it is also well known that in different situations different soil factors may cancel each other’s effect out (Rienks et al. 2000).

Soil pH influences nutrient absorption and plant growth. Some plants, like kūmara and potatoes, grow best in a more acidic soil (pH of 5.0–6.0). Carrots and lettuces prefer soils with a neutral pH of 7.0. Soils can become more acidic over time as minerals are leached away. Lime is often added to soil
