GENERAL PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF IRRIGATED GRASS SOILS OF BUKHARA OAZIS AND WAYS TO IMPROVE THEM
The article discusses the general physical properties of irrigated meadow soils of the Bukhara oasis. The specific gravity of the soil genetic layers ranges from 2.56-2.67 g / cm3. The bulk weight of soils in the genetic layers is 1.27-1.63 g / cm3, while the total porosity is satisfactory in the upper layers of the soil (47-51%) and unsatisfactory in the lower layers (38-42%). Since the mechanical composition of the soil is deteriorating, its density is slightly higher.
