Mention any three features of arid soil.
Three features of arid soil are :
- Arid soils range from red to brown in colour. They are generally sandy in texture and saline in nature.
- The soil lacks humus and moisture due to dry climate, high temperature, evaporation is faster causing it to lose moisture.
- The lower horizons of the soil are occupied by Kankar because of the increasing calcium content downwards. This Kankar layer restrict the infiltration of water.
