Abstract
One important function of a soil is that it retains water after rainfall or irrigation which the plants growing on use (transpire) during periods when there is no direct supply of water through rainfall or irrigation. The amount of water which is retained (stored) in the soil varies from one soil type to another while the availability to plants depends on soil characteristics, plant factors and climate conditions. The determination of soil moisture storage and its use in crop simulation an4 land evaluation will be further explained.
