How to Improve Irrigation Scheduling Using Soil Moisture

Every irrigator wishes for tools that answer the fundamental questions: when do I turn the water on and when do I turn the water off? The challenge is figuring out the right ones and implementing them effectively. New sensor technology and cloud computing offer new opportunities to growers, but it is often unclear how to put these into practice.

In this webinar, Dr. Gaylon Campbell covers the different methods irrigators can use to schedule irrigation and the pros and cons of each. Get to know why we schedule irrigation, best practices for soil moisture monitoring, and the results of good management.

Presenter

Dr. Gaylon S. Campbell has been a research scientist and engineer at METER for over 20 years, following nearly 30 years on faculty at Washington State University. Dr. Campbell’s first experience with environmental measurement came in the lab of Sterling Taylor at Utah State University making water potential measurements to understand plant water status.

Dr. Campbell is one of the world’s foremost authorities on physical measurements in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. His book written with Dr. John Norman on Environmental Biophysics provides a critical foundation for anyone interested in understanding the physics of the natural world. Dr. Campbell has written three books, over 100 refereed journal articles and book chapters, and has several patents.
