SOIL

Is a mixture of organic matter, minerals, gases, liquids, and organisms that together support life. It has four important functions: it is a medium for plant growth; it is a means of water storage, supply and purification; it is a modifier of Earth's atmosphere; it is a habitat for organisms; all of which, in turn, modify the soil.
