The Impact of Irrigation on Soil Structure

Product Information

Good soil structure is an essential element of healthy and sustainable agro-ecosystems. It promotes the development of extensive plant root systems and efficient use of water and nutrients and, in doing so, buffers plants against drought and other adversity.

Irrigation places a number of stresses on soil structure. This review examines the nature of soil structure, its role in plant growth, the nature of stresses on soil structure which come from irrigation and management approaches to irrigation-induced soil structural decline.
