The objective of this study was to determine physical properties of key agricultural soils with major emphasis on soil moisture characteristics and on the relation of soil textural components to available moisture-holding capacity. A total of 51 profiles, representing 23 soil series and 29 soil types, was sampled. Soil samples were taken only from crop land.
