Explain the soil profile with the help of a diagram.

Asked by Topperlearning User 23rd April 2015, 1:26 PM

Soil broadly consists of four layers. These are:

  1. Top Soil: This is the outer thin layer. It contains fine particles and organic matter. It is on this layer that plants and crops grow.
  2. Sub soil: This layer lies below the top soil. It contains materials which are removed from the top soil.
  3. Weathered Rock: This layer lies below the sub soil. It is in first stage of soil formation.
  4. Bed Rock or the Parent Rock: This is un-weathered rock. It determines the nature of the soil.
