Use of pressure bomb in the determination of soil water potential

Abstract

Pressure bomb apparatus was employed to determine the water potential values of fine sand and a loamy sand soil. Water potential equilibrium was obtained between potted plant (Sunflower,Helianthus annuus L.) and soil by precluding evapo-transpiration and allowing time to overcome potential gradient between the two. At this stage the plant was behaving as a… (More)
