Loam or silt and clay percentages are not the only parameters that should be taken into account when discussing soil quality. Organic ZD6474 content is also important since soils that are rich in organic matter can retain water and are less susceptible to erosion because it also improves soil structure (Whitefield, 2004). Unfortunately, organic matter content changes over time due to continuous breakdown and supply, which makes it difficult to draw conclusions based on this parameter.
