The Field Capacity of a Soil Depends Upon

By Aina Parasher|Updated : July 26th, 2022

The field capacity of a soil depends upon-

  1. Capillary tension in soil
  2. Porosity of soil
  3. Both A and B
  4. Neither A nor B

Answer: (c) Both A and B

The field capacity of a soil depends upon capillary tension in soil and porosity of soil.

Solution

Field Capacity:- It is defined as the amount of water content left in the soil after excess water gets drained off due to gravity and also the rate of downward movement is decreased.

  • Field capacity is always expressed in percentage.
  • Field capacity is always less than or equal to saturation capacity.
  • The field capacity of a soil depends upon the capillary tension in soil and Porosity of soil.
