Abstract
Uses of Soil for a wide vanity of purposes are largely governed by interactions between soils and climatic Condition S, The Soil-water state at any given moment depends on the hydraulic properties of the Soil the weather and soil drainage. Emphasis in this presentation IS on the manner in which the soil-water state IS being characterized in the context of land evaluation. Land evaluation IS concerned With the assessment of land performance:e when used for specified purposes (FAO, 1976), Current and failure development m land evaluation are discussed, emphasizing the particular input of soil survey when using computer Simulation models for the soil-water regime. The Soil-water regime plays a key role m land evaluation, as it governs the Soil-water state at any given time during the year.
