Abstract: 
Frequent droughts, improper grazing management and exploitation of rangelands caused degradation of vegetation. Currently several shrubs especially Atriplex canescens is used for restoration of the rangelands as a result a vast areas have been planted by this species. However, no study was conducted to assess the echo hydrological aspect of this species. The present study was therefore taken place to investigate the soil moisture distribution, as one of the controller factor for proper rangeland management, in root zone of three A. canescens in a planted area located in Birjand Township, eastern of Iran. For this propose, an area was surrounded around the plants and then irrigated. A profile was then dug after two days with a dimension of 180 cm length to adepth of 100 cm. The soil samples were then taken from 10 points in depth with intervals of 10 cm and 21 points in horizontal direction at 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150 and 180 cm. The volumetric moisture of the soil samples was measured using weighing technique and data was analyzed using SPSS11.5 software.
The results showed that the soil moisture content is radially decreased as distance increased from plants. The comparison also revealed that the soil moisture is the highest and lowest rate at depth of 20-30 and 60-100 cm, respectively, owing to controlling interaction between atmospheric condition and root distribution system.
