Question

How does waterlogging aid in peat formation?


  1. all of these

  2. excess water helps in soil conservation

  3. water contains hydrogen which makes the environment acidic and helps in peat formation

  4. it limits the supply of oxygen and other nutrients


Solution

The correct option is D

it limits the supply of oxygen and other nutrients


Waterlogging limits the supply of oxygen and other nutrients in the soil and therefore aids in the formation of peat. Peat is formed when plant material, usually in wet areas, is inhibited from decaying fully because of acidic and anaerobic conditions.
