  • Soil Compaction and Crusts

    How do soil factors affect compaction? Soil texture. Soil of any texture will compact—sand, silt, or clay. Soils made up of a uniform mixture of sand, silt, and clay compact more than soils made up of particles of about the same size. The reason being that soil pores become filled
