Soil is an important resource. It is the medium of plant growth and supports various kinds of living organisms on the Earth. We cannot imagine plant and human life without soil.



Three features of black soil are



1. Black soil is rich in soil nutrients such as calcium carbonate, potash, lime and magnesium; however, they are poor in phosphoric content.



2. During hot weather, they develop cracks which help in the aeration of soil. They can hold moisture.

3. Black soil is formed of extremely fine clayey material.
