SOIL WATER POTENTIAL + IRRIGATION MONITORING

Map plant available water






The limits of soil moisture

Access to water is often the limiting factor in plant growth. While soil water content—or soil moisture—can tell you how much water is stored in the soil, water potential tells you which way the water will move, and its availability to crops.

Track trends in plant water availability using ZENTRA Cloud and our TEROS 21 water potential sensors. Continuous field measurements of soil water potential let you monitor soil water status based on plant comfort.

Soils vary.  Your yields shouldn’t.

Each soil holds water differently. Identifying full and refill points using soil moisture data requires some knowledge of soil type and the profile itself. With water potential, the levels at which plants stress are simple to identify.

System components

SOIL WATER POTENTIAL + IRRIGATION MONITORING SYSTEM

FEATURES

  • Maintenance-free soil water potential measurement
  • Operating range [TEROS 21]: −9 to −2,000 kPa (1.96 to 4.31 pF)
  • Long-term, continuous tracking
  • Applied irrigation monitoring

BENEFITS

  • Irrigate based on plant water availability
  • End guesswork with easy-to-identify full and refill points
  • See finite changes at lower water potential levels for deficit irrigation scheduling
  • Avoid estimation errors that occur with plant available water models
