Water management in cracked paddy soils is an important issue in rice cultivation. In order to study organic matter and zeolite effect and their interaction on moisture conditions and hydraulic and physical properties of paddy soils, the organic matter (rice straw) at four levels (0, 8, 16 and 24 tons per hectare), zeolite at four levels (0, 0.5, 1 and 1.5 percent ), and also moisture stages of soil at 5 levels were selected. This experiment was conducted in Rice Research Institute of Iran. Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) was used to study the effect of treatments on different subjects. The amount of moisture, bulk density and the distance of soil from the wall of container were measured in a 4-month period. The obtained results showed that the interaction effects of organic matter and zeolite on soil moisture content were statistically significant at one percentage level. Addition of plant residues caused an increase in soil moisture weight and reduction in bulk density compared to the control treatment. It was also found that soil moisture content and bulk density were highly correlated. Bulk density of control treatment ranged from 0.75 to1.7 gr/cm3, while with addition of 1.5 % crop residue the bulk density ranged from 0.7 to 1.3gr/cm3. Overall results show that crop residues are effective in reduction of crack parameters of soil , but zeolite cannot be effective although it causes more maintenance of soil moisture.
