Crop-adjusted available water capacity

The ‘crop-adjusted available water capacity’ is a measure of moisture that plants can extract from the soil. It is related to soil texture, soil structure, stoniness and the depth of the soil that roots can exploit.

Ref The HS2 London-West Midlands Environmental Statement, published by the Department for Transport in November 2013.
