  Moisture Retention in Soil
 

Reduction of moisture in soil is caused by erosion of soil by any or all of the factors mentioned below:

 


  • Precipitation: Excessive rainfall causes increased run-offs, which in turn removes the fertile top soil and degrades land.
  • Slope of land: Steep slopes increase soil erosion.
  • Type of soil: Those with less absorption capacity will cause more erosion.
  • Nature of ground cover and land use: Ground covered with vegetation reduces rainfall velocity and helps in better water absorption capacity.
