Technical Sales & Project Manager – Jain Monitoring and Control

Precision irrigation improves yields, reduces labor, and conserves water. Using soil moisture meters for irrigation scheduling, especially for agriculture, is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to save water and reduce costs.
 
In this session, we will explain the difference between soil moisture sensors that measure volumetric water content and ones that use soil tension.
We will show each’s pros and cons and help you understand which is best for your application.
 
You will also gain additional knowledge of the basic principles behind irrigation scheduling using the data collected from the moisture in your soil.
