Determining Soil Texture

You are here:
< Back

Soil texture is an important soil property to understand for agricultural and farming-related activities. The texture of a soil influences how much water a soil can hold. A clay rich soil holds more water than a sandy soil, which means that a clay rich soil should be watered less frequently with more water during each irrigation event. A sandy soil should be watered more frequently with less water during each event. There are many techniques used to measure soil texture.
