This study shows that bypass flow processes are strongly related to soil structure. By managing the soil, bypass flow can be influenced and controlled to a certain extent. Mechanistic simulation models, describing processes rather that phenomena, can help to explore scenarios, which allows a better selection of experiments or potential successful management options.
