Then using the resulted relationship from pore network modeling and solving the partial differential Richards' equation by finite difference scheme (PNMCRE), water movement in the soil has been simulated. 2.2.1 Soil water The water potential in soil affects water reservoir and its availability for plants, hence it has a large impact on plant growth and production .

Soil-Water-Crop Relationship 2. Some soil moisture characteristics. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of different levels of irrigation and nitrogen management on nitrate leaching of corn grown for silage. Post-irrigation movement of soil, nematic wave approximation to infiltration. For each of the irrigation levels, there was an associated optimum amount of N, which increased as the amount of irrigation water that was applied increased. Leaf area index, total aboveground biomass (TB), plant height, stem diameter, and leaf, stem, and ear dry weight were measured during the growing seasons and at final harvest. 1940.
