This webinar will teach how ground-truthing soil moisture probes is an essential element for successfully managing soil moisture throughout the growing season.

Soil moisture probes are essential for saving water and ensuring crops have sufficient water and nutrients in the root zone during all phases of the plant’s phenological cycle.

However, recognizing when to check your soil moisture probes’ readings, how to interpret core soil samples by the hand feel method, and how to set upper and lower boundaries is as much art as it is science.

In this webinar, we will go to the field to take core soil samples, compare our findings with a soil moisture probe and work through actual examples of using the data to improve water management for your crops.

Join us to learn:

  1. How to ground truth a soil moisture probe
  2. Why soil moisture probes are essential for water management
  3. How to verify your soil moisture probes reading
  4. How to take a core soil sample
