To save and restore soil structure and improve agrophysical and microbiological properties of soils under conditions of water scarcity, it is essential to have mulching with different materials. Under a layer of mulch, optimal temperature, and soil moisture conditions for plants are maintained. Soil temperature drops occur less dramatically. This has a positive effect on metabolism in plants. The greatest effect of mulching is observed in areas with dry weather, as a mulch prevents evaporation of moisture from the soil.
