In addition, a flux-based field capacity proposed by Assouline and Or (2014) was adopted in preference to an arbitrary head-based field capacity for the wet range.
Depending on the timing of the winter water application with respect to antecedent rainfall, about 0.9 to 3 in (2.3 to 7.6 cm) of the applied winter water was used to bring the water content in the root zone to field capacity. This contribution to soil storage increased to about 2.7 to 4.7 in (7 to 12 cm) when the transmission zone (2 to 5 ft) was included in the water balance.
where d is the depth of irrigation (cm), FC is the field capacity of the soil (%), M[C.sub.i] is the moisture content of the soil before irrigation (%), [A.sub.s] is the apparent specific gravity of the soil, and D is the depth of the effective root zone (cm).
The field capacity, field efficiency and fuel consumption of the four row self-propelled paddy transplanter were 0.1 ha/h, 65% and 10 lit/ha, respectively.
The comparison in structural field capacity was listed in Table 4, and the maximum margin of error was 11.1% and the average was 6.1%.
Through field data it has been observed that an area of one acre at different engine speed (1/3rd, 2/3rd, and full speed) was raked in average time of 12.889 minutes, 8.886 minutes, and 8.254 minutes which produced the effective field capacity of 8.316 acre per hour, 6.821 acre per hour, and 4.703 acre per hour respectively (Figure 2.6).
Figure 3 provided comparison of the effects of drought stress (based on field capacity) in shoot and root length, and fresh shoot and root weight.
Three water regimes; 80% field capacity and irrigation at 60% and 40% field capacities were started five weeks after seed germination.
Sowing at field capacity level of soil after wheat harvesting:
Mineralization was studied by an incubation experiment with farmyard manure, dhaincha (Sesbania aculeata) and mungbean residues applied at two rates (2.5 and 5 t ha-1) under two moisture levels (saturated and field capacity condition) over 12 weeks of incubation at 30degC in an artificial incubation room at Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture (BINA).
Soil water contents at field capacity and wilting point were determined using the pressure membrane apparatus.
Except in areas with consistently high rainfall, your garden soil's moisture level will seldom be at "field capacity." That's the term scientists use to describe the maximum amount of water a soil can hold.
