Water absorption in grazed and rested pastures

Summary: Pasture grazed and then allowed to rest 5 weeks showed better water infiltration than pasture rested either for shorter periods or for a year.

These are the results of a test I did in 21 June of 1997. A flash rain went through an area where I had four pastures of similar topography and soil. We got 2" (50 mm) of rain in 30 minutes.
