Abstract Pore size distribution (PSD) affects numerous soil functions and root growth. The PSD is largely influenced by soil management practices. We have compared the PSD in a wide pore size range of conventionally tilled (CT) and orchard (OR) loamy soil, determined by different methods. Water retention curve, mercury intrusion porosimetry, nitrogen adsorption isotherm and water desorption isotherm were used to quantify the PSD for equivalent pore radii > 50 to 0.1 μm, 7.5 to 0.0037 μm, 0.1 to… CONTINUE READING
