  • Managing Soils for Avocado Production and Root Health

    Bulk density is simply a measure of the weight per unit volume of soil. Since the air space does not contribute to the soil weight, the bulk density value can be used to determine the actual pore space in the soil. A solid mass of soil particles has a typical weight of 2.65 grams per cubic centimeter. Hence, a bulk density value of 1.3 means
