Short-term (i.e., seasonal) variations are expected with some soil physical properties, whereas other properties, such as particle size, are considered static. However, less is known about long-term (i.e., decadal) variations in properties, such as particle-size fractions and water-retention characteristics, caused by continuous annual cultivation. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of land use (i.e., undisturbed virgin prairie vs. cultivated agriculture) and years of… CONTINUE READING
