Soil can best be described as the
Soil is a natural body consisting of layers (soil horizons) that are primarily composed of minerals, mixed with at least some organic matter, which differ from their parent materials in their texture, structure, consistency, color, chemical, [ biological and other characteristics. It is the loose covering of fine rock particles that covers the surface of the earth. Soil is the end product of
the influence of the climate, relief (slope), organisms, parent materials (original minerals), and time. In engineering terms, soil is referred to as regolith, or loose rock material that lies above the 'solid geology'. In horticulture, the term 'soil' is defined as the layer that contains organic material that influences and has been influenced by plant roots, and may range in depth from centimetres to many metres. ]
