How can the farmer know good soils on which to grow specific crops


  • A farmer can know good soils on which to grow specific crops by conducting a soil test, which provides information about the soil's pH, nutrient content, organic matter content, texture, and other properties that affect crop growth. This information can then be used to select crops that are best suited to the soil's characteristics, or to make adjustments to the soil through fertilization or other amendments to improve its suitability for a particular crop. Additionally, the farmer can observe the natural vegetation growing in the area, which can indicate the soil's fertility and the types of crops that may grow well in that environment.
