Soil composition - Introduction

Let us get introduced to soil composition

Neil’s little brother Avi was planting a sapling when Neil came in the ground

Avi, don’t plant in this soil. Soil is dead and it’s not good. The plant will not grow

Avi: what do you mean by good soil?

Good soil is made up of mineral matters, soil organisms, organic matter, water, and air.

Let us learn about the soil composition in a little more detail

Avi requested Neil to bring some good soil for him that has all components of good soil.

Mineral Particles consists of inorganic substance, present as particles of different sizes and composition.

Organic Matter is derived from the litter formed of fallen leaves, twigs, animal excreta and their bodies.

Soil air has macrospores. A good soil should have 25% air by volume.

Soil Water: An ordinary garden soil contains about 25% water

Soil organisms are microflora, microfauna, macroflora macrofauna.

Neil brought some good soil from the garden and gave to Avi to plant the sapling.
