What are the consequences of planting in wet soil?

planting in wet soil-consequences

Planting in wet soil can cause root rot. If the crown or major roots are affected by root rots, the entire plant can wilt and die rapidly. If only the small "feeder" roots are affected, the plant may decline slowly and just look sickly and unproductive. Sick or damaged roots may be present only on part of a plant's root system, resulting in a one-sided appearance of yellow, stunted leaves.
