Methods to calculate drainage and prevent soil salinization
There are many benefits to using electrical conductivity (EC) measurements along with water content for irrigation scheduling. In this talk, Dr. Doug Cobos reviews the three measures of EC, the different applications for EC, and the keys for making these measurements.
- What EC measurements tell you about your water drainage and soil salinity status
- Ways to convert from soil bulk EC to soil water EC and saturation extract EC
- How to adjust irrigation events based on EC
