Q.5 How is clayey soil useful for crops?

Answer :

Clayey soil is useful for crops for the following reasons:

(1) Due to the very small size of the particles of clayey soil, particles are packed tightly and therefore can retain water.

(2) Clayey soil is also rich in organic matter. Clayey soil is rich in humus and is very fertile. For growing crops such as wheat, gram, and paddy, the soil that is good at retaining water and rich in organic matter is suitable.

Therefore, clayey soils having these characteristics are useful for such kinds of crops.
