Available water capacity

Loosely, the amount of water available for plants to use. Specifically, the volume of water released from soil between the time the soil is at field capacity (the maximum water held in soil against the pull of gravity) until the time it is at the wilting point (the amount of water held too tightly in soil for commonly grown crops to extract). Loamy soils and soils high in organic matter have the highest AWC.

Available water storage capacity

Corresponds to the water retained in the soil between the states of field capacity (FC) and permanent wilting point (PWP)
