In most cultivated soils, the plow layer is treated periodically with fertilizers and lime to correct obvious problems of mineral element deficiency or toxicity. Hence, most plant rooting difficulties are imposed by the sub- plow layer of the soil profile. Such problems may be physical (plow pans or genetic hardpans) or chemical (mineral element toxicities or deficiencies) in nature or both. In any event, the problem is often manifested as drought and poor use of subsoil nutrients associated… CONTINUE READING
