There is no physical concept in the base of the head-based definition of FC, therefore, we followed Assouline and Or (2014), who proposed a critical capillary head value, [h.sub.FC], instead of 100 or 330 cm to represent the soil field capacity matric head:
At the Davis site, a small portion of the applied water for each treatment (low: 4 ft; high: 6 ft) was used to fill empty pore space in the soil profile, and as the water application progressed, water-filled pore space increased from field capacity (water retained in soil by gravity) to saturation (freely drainable water) (O'Geen 2012).
Irrigation water was applied to bring the soil moisture up to field capacity, considering the effective root zone depth.
