Estimating extractable soil moisture content for Australian soils from field measurements

Estimating extractable soil moisture content for Australian soils from field measurements

Australian Journal of Soil Research 44(5): 531-541

The amount of water that can be stored in soil and evaporated or actively used by plants is a key parameter in hydrologic models and is important for crop and pasture production. Often, the active soil moisture store is estimated from laboratory measurements of soil properties. An alternative approach, described in this paper, is to estimate the extractable soil moisture capacity from direct measurements of soil moisture content in the field.
