The type of crop that may be grown in a particular field depends on the type of soil.Give three example in support of this statement.

Dear student, 
Please find below the solution to the asked query               

Soils can be classified into 3 different types based on their composition, size of soil particles, and other properties. Sandy soil cannot hold water easily, so more watering is required. Clayey soil can hold water so less irrigation is required. Thus the type of a crop grown depends on the nature of the soil. Rice, wheat, sugarcane are some of the crops that grow well in humus-rich soil as this type of soil is very fertile and contains a lot of nutrients.
