Soil composition is an important aspect of nutrient management. Soil water is what readily provides nutrients for plant uptake. Soil is a complex body composed of five major components Mineral matter obtained by the disintegration and decomposition of rocks; Organic matter, obtained by the decay of plant residues, animal remains and microbial tissues; Water, obtained from the atmosphere and the reactions in soil (chemical, physical and microbial); Air or gases, from atmosphere, reactions of roots, microbes and chemicals in the soil
