Soils

Horticultural crops are adapted to a wide range of soil types at times with specific requirements. Soils particle types include clay 0.002 mm or less, silt 0.05 to 0.002 mm and sand 0.05 mm or above. Aspects of soil fertility and soil pH were discussed. Organic and inorganic fertilizers as source of nutrients were also discussed.
