Synopsis

Synopsis

Incubation of a Toledo clay loam soil revealed that as soil water is increased above field-capacity the soil environment is changed from oxidizing to reducing conditions. This transformation occurred in about five days. Thus, a soaking rain could create an healthy environment for plant growth, unless drainage is prompt. The formation of the genetic soil profile can also be partially explained by this rapid reduction.
