Particle Size Distribution

Particle size distribution (grain size distribution or texture) ranks among soil's core features. It influences properties like moisture availability, permeability, compaction, etc. These, in turn, dictate tillage ease, capillary conductivity, and more.

Soil Grain-Size Analysis

Soil classification leans heavily on particle size distribution. Soil quality's target and intervention values hinge on parameters including the clay fraction. Accurate particle size determination involves methods beyond sieve-based analysis.
