5.1: Introduction- Soil Texture, Structure and Water Relations

  • Page ID
  • In this lab, you will observe examples of soil textures and structures independently. Second, you will observe the effects of texture and structure on water percolation. Third, you will measure the water holding capacity of a coarse and fine textured soil. During the exercise, try to think about how the concepts you are learning can be applied to your major area of interest.
