Field Capacity (FC)

It is the capacity of a field to hold the amount of water against gravitational forces. It is expressed as the percentage of the dry weight of the soil. Field capacity represents the upper limit of water availability and its value differs from soil to soil. The capacity of clay soil on an average is about 40-45%, silt 20% and sand 5-10%.
