Abstract

It is of great significance to understand the rule of soil infiltration to develop and better use of land resources or guide the agricultural irrigation. The grass infiltration apparatus is used to test the soil infiltration under different land uses, including grassland, woodland and vegetable land. The relationship between saturated water content and bulk density and their influence on soil infiltration were studied also. The main results are as follows: 1)The steady infiltration rate of grassland, woodland, and vegetable land soil are 1.87 mm/min, 0.39 mm/min, 6.93 mm/min respectively; The saturated moisture content are 23.41%, 27.53% and 28.78% respectively;The soil bulk density was 1.61g/cm3, 1.46g/cm3 and 1.43g/cm3 respectively.2)The steady infiltration rate and saturation moisture content are positively correlated. 3)The weight of soil is negatively correlated with the saturated moisture content. These results can provide useful information for land improvement, water and soil management practices.
