Redefinition of new Soil Physical Groups

The soil moisture parameters required for the CGMS include soil moisture content at saturation, wilting point (pF 4.2) and field capacity (pF 2.0). Redefinition should be based on available soil water retention data from literature, existing digital soil physical databases and expertise drawn from a long experience of working with these parameters at local, national and European levels.
