It is strong against the rain element (as it's basically water), Ice, as it can shatter it, Dark release, as it is not energy, and even if dark release absorbs it's chakra, the matter will still be there, Scorch, as it can't dehydrate earth, which is already dehydrated, Steam, as earth is too thick to be affected by it, effectively can defend from attacks of Magnet release (metallic objects).
It is weak against Lava (with which it is infused, thus producing more lava), Wood (breaks the earth, as it is more dense), Crystal (same reason as Wood), Storm (as it involves lighting, to which earth is weak), Steel (same reason as wood), Boil will melt the earth, Blast will blow it away, Sand can be manipulated to be stronger than earth, Bones are hard and can destroy earth, Dust release will reduce earth jutsu to... well dust <- self explanatory
Finally, like all elemental jutsu, it is strong against raw chakra.
