Estimation of field capacity and permanent wilting point from some soil physical and chemical properties



Estimation of field capacity and permanent wilting point from some soil physical and chemical properties



Journal of Science and Technology of Agriculture and Natural Resources 4(1): 1-9



Field capacity (FC) and permanent wilting point (PWP) are important factors affecting irrigation scheduling and field management, and can be estimated from some of the soil physical and chemical properties. Pressure Plate apparatus is usually used for determination of FC and PWP, but this is a time-consuming and laborious procedure; besides, the apparatus may not be available in many laboratories.
