This paper is dedicated to an assessment of the balance states of a polydisperse soil system and soil humus content under increasingly arid climate. We found a general principle, which could be described using a mathematical model, of correlation and interdependence between the humus content in physical clay, that in the soil, and the dynamic balance constants of a polydisperse soil system.
