  • An Instrumented Rhizotron to Investigate the Root Growth In Wheat - Case Study

    There has been much recent interest in modifying root system properties to overcome the effects of soil abiotic stress on crop growth and yield (Lynch 2007; Ghanem et al. 2011). Plant root systems are usually exposed to heterogeneous environmental conditions due to vertical differences in soil moisture and strength. Strong subsurface layers of soil can confine root systems to shallower soil ...

    Soil Sensor Reader Kit (SDI-12)

    This kit contains the Acclima Sensor Reader which will read any Acclima SDI-12 soil moisture sensor, display the VWC and BEC readings, and (if it`s a `Waveform Capture` sensor) it will record and display the waveform. The kit comes with a rugged carrying case, a 32 GB thumb drive, a digital True TDR-315H soil water content sensor with Waveform Capture and terminated with an M12 connector, and an ...
