Water agar refers to a solid medium of agar (could be any brand i.e.

The usual concentration is 15-20 g of agar per liter.

The soil population is so complex that it manifestly cannot
be dealt with as a whole with any detail by any one person,
and at the same time it plays so important a part in the soil
economy that it must be studied.
