Soil Water Monitoring Articles

  • Irrigation Application Management

    The Irrigation Applications management takes all measurements of the inlet discharge and pressure at the pivot point and pivot end. Especially when the ground is uneven, where we take readings at the highest point. Preferably, this pressure value should be at least 5 PSI higher than the rated value of the pressure regulator, to ensure safety and proper operation, as the regulator must be ...

  • Benefits of applying organic fertilizer to oil palm

    Oil palm is a perennial evergreen gymnospermous woody plant. It not only consumes a large amount of nutrients, but also has characteristics of nutrient demand. In addition to N, P, K and trace elements, the demand for lignocellulose is higher. It is not enough to plant oil palm only by using chemical compound fertilizer. The predatory use of soil will eventually lead to the deterioration of soil ...

  • Evaluation of a Direct-Coupled TDR for Determination of 1 Soil Water Content and Bulk Electrical Conductivity

    Signal degradation in coaxial cables and interconnects is a long-standing problem in the practical deployment of time domain reflectometry (TDR) for soil water monitoring. Acclima, Inc. has recently commercialized a TDR sensor (TDR-315) with all electronics required for waveform acquisition embedded in the probe head. We calibrated ten TDR-315 sensors and conventional TDR for apparent ...

  • The Accurate Way to Soil Moisture Sensing

    Why Acclima soil moisture sensor technology is superior in terms of accuracy and cost Permittivity is a property of matter and is well characterized especially for materials that are electrically non-conductive. Water in its pure form is non-conductive. Permittivity quantifies the charge holding capacity for insulating materials. It is the ratio of stored electric charge to an applied ...

  • Reduced soil tilling helps both soils and yields

    Agriculture degrades over 24 million acres of fertile soil every year, raising concerns about meeting the rising global demand for food. But a simple farming practice born from the 1930's Dust Bowl could provide a solution, according to new Stanford research. The study, published Dec. 6 in Environmental Research Letters, shows that Midwest farmers who reduced how much they overturned the ...
