Water in the soil that can be taken up by the plant in amounts and at rates that will make the plant grow.
portion of water in a soil that can be readily absorbed by plant roots.
Portion of soil water that can be readily absorbed by plant roots. Often considered to be that water held in the soil against a pressure of -33 kPa to approximately -1,500 kPa (or -15 bars).
The difference between the current soil moisture and the wilting point. Maximum available water is the field capacity minus the wilting point.
