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.

Director of Business Development

My entire career and personal life has been immersed in the agriculture industry. Being raised on a farm in the Mississippi River Delta, my background is in the commodity crops of cotton, corn, and soybeans. My professional career has been focused in the specialty fruit, vegetable and nut crops, however I now am spending considerable time in the commercial landscape market as well. Early in my career I provided CRM, design and sales services. More recently I have concentrated on market development, team management and strategic planning. I believe my experience at the field, distributor and manufacturer level gives me a unique perspective. My career passion is to provide practical solutions to help growers and property managers make better decisions by utilizing field proven technologies.
