The capacity, in inches, in a 60-inch profile or to a limiting layer is expressed as Class: Inches/inch Very low: o to 3 Low: 3 to 6 Moderate: 6 to 9 High: 9 to 12 Very high: More than 1 Available water capacity (AWe) : Loosely, the amount of water available for plants to use. Specifically, the volume of water released from soil between the time the soil is at field capacity (the maximum water held in soil against the pull of gravity) until the time it is at the wilting point (the amount of water held too tightly in soil for commonly grown crops to extract).
