|Abstract:||The continued cultivation of pineapples on the same land has already brought about conditions unfavorable to the growth of the crop. The use of fertilizers, lime and manure has not restored this soil to its original productivity. The mechanical condition of the soil becomes greatly affected and poor drainage results. While only a slight change has taken place in the humus, the clay has become deflocculated, thus reducing the size of the pores in the soil and effectually hindering drainage. This condition in these soils is brought about and really caused by cultivating the soil when it is wet.|
