Abstract : An investigation was made of major interrelated factors which influence the transfer of water from soil through plants to the atmosphere. Results are reported from three studies: (1) effect of temperature on relative vapor pressure of water in soil; (2) relation of psychrometric to membran us measurements of water in soil; and (3) evaporation from soil.
