A generally applicable pedotransfer function that estimates field capacity and permanent wilting point from soil texture and bulk density



A generally applicable pedotransfer function that estimates field capacity and permanent wilting point from soil texture and bulk density



Canadian Journal Of Soil Science: 5, 761-774



Hydrological models require the determination of fitting parameters that are tedious and time consuming to acquire. A rapid alternative method of estimating the fitting parameters is to use pedotransfer functions. This paper proposes a reliable method to estimate soil moisture at -33 and -1500 kPa from soil texture and bulk density. This method reduces the saturated moisture content by multiplying it with two non-linear functions depending on sand and clay contents.
