Infiltration and soil hydraulic properties were measured for a loam soil at the soil surface and at a 30 cm depth beneath eastern gamagrass and tall fescue field plots. The experiment was repeated during February, May, August, and November of 1998. In-situ measurement of infiltration at 0 and -5 cm tension was performed using a tension infiltrometer. Undisturbed soil samples were collected and saturated hydraulic conductivity (K
