Good soil structure is essential for healthy, resilient plants because it allows them to develop extensive, active root systems. This promotes efficient use of water and nutrients, encourages biological activity and cushions plants against drought and other hardship.
The general perception of a soil with good structure is that it is well-drained, easy to penetrate and crumbles readily into aggregates of about 1-10 mm that remain intact when they are wet.
