Soil Moisture / Water Content Formula

Moisture content is the vital property of soil which is essential for the agriculture. Soil with insufficient water content becomes unfit for cultivation. The percentage of water contained in a soil is called as the soil moisture content. Soil moisture content calculation can be done using this Soil Moisture / Water Content formula. It is possible to determine the percentage of water (%) present in the soil based on the mass of water present in the soil and the dry mass of the soil.

Soil Moisture Content Calculation Formula


w = (Mw / Ms) * 100


w = Moisture Content
Mw = Mass of Water in Soil
Ms = Dry Mass of Soil
