Soil Health - Formation of soil aggregates
The effects of manure application on soil aggregation
soil aggregation is increased by manure application within two weeks after application resulting in less runoff P loss, and that the effect persists for a year or longer. Manure application is often credited with improv-ing soil physical properties with beneﬁts such as
SOIL AGGREGATES: DEFINITION AND CAUSES | MARTINS …
DEFINITION: Soil aggregates are clumps of soil particles that are held closely together by moist clay, organic matter (roots ) and by organic compounds, form bacterial fungi and hyphea, aggregates are group of soil particles that binds together to each other more strongly than adjacent particles.
ASTM Aggregate and Soil Terminology - Pavement Interactive
Pavement Interactive was developed by the Pavement Tools Consortium, a partnership between several state DOTs, the FHWA, and the University of Washington, as part of their effort to further develop and use computer-based pavement tools.

While these are indicators of improved soil health and soil aggregation, Holsapple had no way to verify the soil texture improvements. That has changed with the introduction of the Solvita Volumetric Aggregate Stability Test (VAST) from Woods End Laboratories. VAST measures water-stable soil aggregates.

Soil Quality: Indicators: Slaking
What it is: Slaking is the breakdown of large, air-dry soil aggregates (>2-5 mm) into smaller sized microaggregates (<0.25 mm) when they are suddenly immersed in water. Slaking occurs when aggregates are not strong enough to withstand internal stresses caused by rapid water uptake.
Soils & Aggregate Inspector – NETTCP
The Soils and Aggregate Inspector Certification Course is designed for those individuals responsible for the sampling and testing of soils and aggregates used in base, subbase and roadway embankment construction.
Soil Quality: Indicators: Aggregate Stability
Aggregate stability refers to the ability of soil aggregates to resist disintegration when disruptive forces associated with tillage and water or wind erosion are applied. Wet aggregate stability suggests how well a soil can resist raindrop impact and water erosion, while size distribution of dry aggregates can be used to predict resistance to ...

Soil samples were collected from experiments on improved tree fallows using different species and two tillage treatments; water-stable aggregates were extracted and sorted into three size classes: macro-aggregates (> 212 µm), meso-aggregates (53 212 µm) and micro-aggregates …
Soil Aggregates - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics
A soil aggregate is "a group of primary soil particles that cohere to each other more strongly than to other surrounding particles." Soil aggregates form through the combined action of aggregation and fragmentation processes. That is, attractive and disruptive forces act on the particles in the soil to cause greater cohesion among some individual particles and groups of particles than …
