Water content at pF 2 as a characteristic in soil-cultivation research in the Netherlands.
AbstractMoisture content at pF 2 decreases at high bulk densities when areation under wet conditions is top poor for plant growth, and increases if the soil contains a considerable amount of aggregates <1 mm and is thus of unstable structure. A close relationship between pore space and moisture content at pF 2 should be regarded as a warning that the soil is seriously compacted, and an increase from 25 to 30% of the moisture content at pF 2 indicates that intensive cultivation will unfavourably affect soil structure.
