You find, or get your local library to find (interlibrary loan - your
teacher will have told you about it - or should be making trials of
their resignation letter) - a book called "Russell's Soil Conditions and
Plant Growth" 11th edition if possible, Published by Longmans.
That will give you most of the information you require, including loads
of references. It may be tough reading but then good "A" levels were not
meant to be given away with packets of tea.
If, having read the appropriate bits thoroughly, you are still having
problems, contact me on P.J.Harris at reading.ac.uk
