|Explanation||The usable field capacity (nFK) of a soil or horizon is that part of the field capacity that is available for vegetation. It thus contains the amount of water that a horizon remote from the groundwater can hold back in natural storage at suction pressures of pF 1.8-4.2 after sufficient saturation against gravity. The calculation is first made for each horizon. The results are added up and classified based on a depth of 100 cm. The method gives the representative NFK up to 100 cm for a cover / use differentiated substrate unit.|
1. Calculation of the usable field capacity
To calculate the usable field capacity of a horizon for mineral soils, the usable field capacity in mm / dm is first determined from the basic data soil type (rep.) And packing density on the basis of the characteristic values. This is corrected accordingly by additions depending on the organic matter and finally multiplied by the thickness of the horizon (dm). For horizons with a high proportion of coarse soil, the calculated values are multiplied by the correction factor for the proportion of coarse soil (72).
nFK horizon (mineral soil) (mm) = [nFK (mm / dm) + HZ (mm / dm)] × [HM (cm) / 10] × [KoF]
HZ = humus addition
HM = thickness of the horizon
KoF = correction factor for the coarse soil share
In the case of organogenic horizons (H), depending on the substance volume, the type of peat and the decomposition level, the usable field capacity (mm / dm) is taken from the characteristic value tables. This value is then multiplied by the thickness of the horizon in dm (HM).
nFK horizon (peat soil) (mm) = nFK (mm / dm) × HM (cm) / 10
The calculated values of the horizons are added up in a second step. The value of a horizon that exceeds a depth of 100 cm is proportionately included in the calculation. If the profile description is shorter than 100 cm, a depth of up to 100 cm is assumed for the horizon described last.
2. Classification of the usable field capacity
The classification corresponds to the information in Tab. 60 of KA4 (AG Boden 1994), but the effective root space is used as the reference depth.
|nFK up to 100 cm||Designation of the nFK level|
|0 - 60||very low (1)|
|>60 - 140||low (2)|
|>140 - 220||medium (3)|
|>220 - 300||high (4)|
|>300||very high (5)|
