  • 22. 
    It is defined as the water loss which will occur if there is no deficiency in water any time in the soil for the use of vegetation.  
  • 23. 
    It is the moisture content of the soil above which water will be drained by gravity.
  • 24. 
    It is the soil moisture content below which plants cannot extract further water.
  • 25. 
    Movement of water into the soil under gravity and capillary forces.
