The redistribution of soil water after the cessation of infiltration in three agricultural soils was analyzed experimentally in the laboratory. It was found that the rate of redistribution within the soil profiles depended upon the initial depth of wetting and the soil water content-soil water pressure-capillary conductivity relations. The results are discussed in relation to measured and predicted profiles of inert porous mediums. (Key words: Infiltration;irrigation; soft water)
