The water holding capacity of a soil is a very important agronomic characteristic. Soils that hold generous amounts of water are less subject to leaching losses of nutrients or soil applied pesticides. This is true because a soil with a limited water holding capacity (i.e. a sandy loam) reaches the saturation point much sooner than a soil with a higher water holding capacity (i.e. a clay loam). After a soil is saturated with water, all of the excess water and some of the nutrients and pesticides

The water holding capacity is highest in clay because it is made up of very small tightly packed particles that do not allow water to percolate.
