The porous structure or condition of soil when its particles are moderately aggregated.
- ‘Soils which have lost crumb structure need mulch cover to re-build.’

- ‘It has weak subangular blocky to weak granular or crumb structure or it is massive.’

- ‘It usually has granular or crumb structure, but it has subangular blocky structure in some pedons.’
