Response of whole plant water use to soil water availability has often been quantified with respect to fraction of transpirable soil water
The amount of soil water available for transpiration by plants, transpirable water (TW), at pot capacity was defined as the difference between the pot-capacity weight and the pot weight when daily transpiration for water-deficit plants was [is less than] 10% of the well-watered plants (Ritchie, 1981; Sinclair and Ludlow, 1986).
