The soil temperature permits movement of the atoms in the plant necessary for plant life. Without a soil temperature (theoretically -459.67°F. (which itself is a temperature)), plants would be in a (theoretical) state of suspended animation.

There is an optimal 'growing' temperature for each plant. With millions of different plants, there are millions of different optimal temperatures. Soil temperatures above or below the optimal for any given plant will produce less than optimal growth.
