Understanding the water content of the soil can be an important factor in determining how often and when you water the garden or field.The soil content can be estimated by the feeling of the soil sample, but for a more accurate estimate, you can use a specific equation to calculate the water content of the soil.
Called a small metal container.Write down the weight.
Put 350 to 400 grams of soil into the container.Write down the weight.
Dry soil samples in an oven or food dryer for 24 hours at 110 to 120 degrees F.
Put the dry sample in the metal container again and weigh it.Subtract the container weight in step 2 for solution.Then subtract the container weight from the dry sample to get solution B.
To get the total moisture in the soil, use the following equation where the soil moisture is the solution C.{(A-B)/A}*100=C.In other words, subtract solution B from solution A and divide the total by solution.The answer is multiplied by 100.The total amount you receive is the moisture content of the sample.
The moisture content is reflected as the percentage of moisture based on weight.
