There is therefore the need to develop farm management practices that would conserve moisture in the soil
to tide crops over during periods of dry spells and protect the soil against erosion during erosive storms.
When there was absolutely no or little moisture in the soil
(A-0% and B-5%), microbial activity was at its minimum, and ultimately the weight loss of the plastic film was very minimal across the timescale of the experiment.
It is caused from too much moisture in the soil
and not enough air movement.
can also increase demand for agricultural film that helps retain moisture in the soil
. On the other hand, use of methyl bromide gas as a soft fumigant is being limited because of concerns over depletion of the ozone layer.
We get a little bit of rain, the clouds roll away to reveal the sun, and any moisture in the soil
is drawn right back into the sky.
It's low branching--usually right down to the ground--and it's best left that way; the magnolia has a shallow root system and the shade reduces the loss of moisture in the soil
. That's especially important since the tree is happy in full sun.
