Only an estimated 10 percent of the world's
soils are arable, and only a percentage of these
soils are ideal or sufficiently free from adverse
physical and chemical conditions to produce
optimum crop yields. For this reason, much
money and effort have been spent investigating
methods of improving the world's so-called
problem soils. Only in the last 30 years have
the more basic relationships between soil physical
conditions and plant growth become of great
concern to many people. Now there is an increasing
interest in soil and plant mechanics
and in discovering how soil physical conditions
influence soil-water-plant relationships and
overall plant growth.
