Some of the characteristics of healthy soils are inherent, while others are dynamic and can be influenced by management decisions... Dynamic soil characteristicsMany soil characteristics are amendable depending on the way soils are managed... Soil organic matter content, microbial populations, bulk density, infiltration rate, soil water and nutrient holding capacity are examples of dynamic soil characteristics that change over a shorter time period with or without human intervention...
