Re: Which parameters are taken into account?
There are several parameters that should be considered when evaluating the suitability of a soil for agriculture. These include:
Physical properties: The physical properties of a soil, such as its texture (sand, silt, clay content), structure (aggregate size and arrangement), and drainage capabilities, can affect the soil's ability to retain moisture and nutrients, and support plant growth.
Chemical properties: The chemical properties of a soil, such as pH, nutrient levels (especially nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium), and the presence of toxic elements, can also affect plant growth.
Biological properties: The biological properties of a soil, including the types and quantities of microorganisms present, can influence the soil's fertility and its ability to support plant growth.
Climate: The climate in which the soil is located, including temperature, precipitation, and humidity, can also affect its suitability for agriculture.
Topography: The topography of the land, including slope and elevation, can influence the soil's drainage and erosion characteristics.
Irrigation: Access to irrigation water can be a critical factor in the suitability of a soil for agriculture, especially in areas with low rainfall or high evaporation rates.
Overall, a good agricultural soil should have a balanced combination of physical, chemical, and biological properties that are conducive to plant growth, and should be well-suited to the local climate and topography.
This was not the question I asked and to which you refer.

The texture of the soil refer to the size of its mineral particles.. This is important for determining how easily water and nutrients can move through the soil.
