Infiltration Rates: Three Soils with Three Grazing Levels in Northeastern ColoradoRauzi, F.; Smith, F. M. (Society for Range Management, 1973-03-01)The influence of soil type, grazing level, and vegetation on infiltration rates were evaluated at the Central Plains Experimental Range near Nunn, Colorado. Total plant material was significantly correlated with infiltration rates on two of the three soil types tested. Heavy grazing significantly decreased infiltration rates on two of the soil types. Grazing influences did not reduce infiltration rates until after 20 minutes of simulated rainfall.
