Three Year (2004-2006) Comparison Study

 

A very important measure of soil quality is porosity, which is an indicator of water’s ability to infiltrate and move downward into soil.

 

We have used a modified version of USDA-Soil Survey methods of counting pores with a 10X hand lens to count pores over a 10cm x 10cm area = 1 decimeter.

 

These minature sized pores hold water and gases such as: oxygen and carbon dioxide for root uptake.
