Soil Water Content Measurements
Soil moisture sensors also provide water management information. They can be added to weather/evapotranspiration stations or used independently. Both Campbell Scientific and Onset offer a wide variety of options for measuring soil moisture. Also see Sentek Technologies’ offering for complete soil monitoring systems.
For portable water content measurements, the hand-held HydroSense® II probe and display can be easily carried from site to site. The new HS2 handheld has been designed to be compact and portable, with the layout of the buttons allowing for operation with one hand. It shows real time soil-water content measurements in the field. Low power requirements allow thousands of measurements powered only by 4 AA batteries.
