About article:

The aim of this contribution was evaluation of water storage in profile of clay-loamy Gleyic Fluvisol. In field treatment between 2011 and 2016 years, the effect of conventional tillage and no-tillage technologies on maximum, average and minimum soil water storage were observed. Soil samples for the determination of water storage were taken from profile 0.0 – 0.3 m, respectively 0.0 – 0.8 m from both tillage variants. Monitoring was realised during vegetation season at two-week intervals. Obtained contents of soil water storage were re-counted at maximum soil water storage on percent of moisture of field water capacity, at average soil water storage on percent of moisture of point of decreased availability and at minimum soil water storage on percent of moisture of wilting point. Maximum, average and minimum soil water storages, in both observed depth, were significantly influenced by used tillage technology and experimental year. More significant was effect of conventional tillage than no-tillage technology. From point of view of experimental years, the most statistically significant effect had year 2014, with wet vegetation season.
