Abstract/Contents:Emphasizes the importance of organic matter in soils, particularly in high-sand root zone constructions. "Perhaps one of the least recognized and understood beneficial contributions of organic matter is in providing organic compounds that function as natural chelating agents for a number of essential plant nutrients. Iron, manganese, copper, and zinc become more soluble and plant-available in the soil solution by complexing with one of the numerous organic compounds." Adds that this benefit is one of many that "justify the inclusion of an organic matter component in the original high-sand root zone construction."
