Hygroscopic a the water held so tightly As a thin film around each soil particle that the plants cannot use it. 2. Capillary a tile water that it loosely held around each soil particle As a result of capillary attraction. It is from this film that plants receive the water and most of the nutrients necessary for nor Mal growth. 3. Gravitational a the water in excess of the capillary water which is removed under the Force of Grav try. It fills the openings Between the Sod particles and granules that bold the lapidary Waler.

In the first place they provide for the prompt removal of any excess of gravitational water Aud prevents water digging. The other reason is to remove the Alkali salts which tend to accumulate when the soil water is removed by transpiration Aud evaporation.
