Abstract
The question of the effect of irrigation and cultivation on the physical characteristics of the Gezira soil and the effect on soil conditions of intensifying cultivation are assessed. Work on physical and chemical characteristics of fallow and cotton plots at the Gezira research station comprise measurements on permeability and infiltration. Soil dispersion in water was assessed and electrical conductivity of saturation extract, exchangeable based and organic matter determined. Soil hardness was investigated using a penetrometer and by measuring modulus of rupture of artificial soil briquettes.
