These six short videos teach you everything you need to know about soil water content and soil water potential—and why you should measure them together. Plus, master the basics of soil hydraulic conductivity.
Video 1: MASTER THE BASICS
Soil moisture is more than just knowing the amount of water in soil. Learn basic principles you need to know before deciding how to measure it.
Video 2: WATER CONTENT METHODS—DEMYSTIFIED
Dr. Colin Campbell compares measurement theory, the pros and cons of each method, and why modern sensing is about more than just the sensor.
Video 3: SOIL MOISTURE RELEASE CURVES—REVEALED
A soil moisture release curve is a powerful tool used to predict plant water uptake, deep drainage, runoff, and more.
WHY SOIL MOISTURE SENSORS CAN'T TELL YOU EVERYTHING
If you’re only measuring water content, you may be blind to what your plants are really experiencing. To understand when to water or plant water stress, you need to measure water content AND water potential. Find out why.
Dr. Colin Campbell has spent nearly 20 years looking at problematic and surprising soil moisture data. In this 30-minute webinar, he discusses what to expect in different soil, environmental, and site situations and how to interpret that data effectively.
