A summarization of soil moisture data taken for an energy balance study during the 1960 and 1961 growing seasons in Ellis Hollow at Ithaca, New York is presented. The soil is Chenango channery silt loam, fan phase. This is a moderately well-drained soil, and has a layer of glacially deposited stones at a depth of two feet. Little soil development is present below two feet, but some root penetration does occur. Eighty-five percent by weight of the roots of mature corn are distributed in the first 18 inches.
