Welcome to NC's Agronomy department
About our department
Chemical changes the rock type. Water, carbon dioxide, and oxygen are the main chemical agents. It also known as decay and decomposition.
Mechanical brakes rocks into smaller pieces, ice wedging breaks the rock There are also three types of weathering water, ice, wind.
Soil texture is an on organic part of soil made of different particals like sandy and granite rocks
Soil Horizon Is soil that is both different from both layers and colorize grass and dirt.
Soil Formation is how soil forms, it forms from rocks breaking down and then the minerals get mixed
Soil composition soil is a mixture of rock particles and it only keeps inorganic minerals
common misuses are the fact that people dig up the soil so when we try to farm it's no longer fertile and they use it for granite. People put buildings on good soil so it turns bad. Farmers usually don't put there crops in the right direction.
Consequences are that the soil grows very slowly so it might take more than 100 years and we couldn't grow any food
Soil stewardship farmers are trying there best to keep us going by growing more and more vegetables but they put compost to make the soil fertile
Agronomy is looking for more ways to keep our soil fertile and safe so we can live fine and without worry that our vegetables won't die out so they are showing you how important It is
