Mean waterlogging of the soil

Optimal growth of most culture plants is only possible if the oxygen availability during the growing season is sufficient. Strongly waterlogged soils with insufficient aeration are only suitable for litter meadows or as wetlands, in which well-adapted plant species predominate. The latter can withstand long periods having little oxygen in the root area and they mostly have little feed value. Most
