Becoming a Tensiometer and HYPROP Wizard

In this webinar, Leo Rivera explores refill techniques for METER tensiometers and the HYPROP

In this webinar, Leo Rivera covers syringe filling of tensiometers: how to fill the sensors and the base.  He also discusses vacuum system refilling, and he teaches how to assemble and refill the HYPROP.  The webinar ends with a quick look at the HYPROP VIEW software.

Our scientists have decades of experience helping researchers and growers measure the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. 


Leo Rivera operates as a research scientist and Hydrology Product Manager at METER Group, the world leader in soil moisture measurement. He earned his undergraduate degree in Agriculture Systems Management at Texas A&M University, where he also got his Master’s degree in Soil Science. There he helped develop an infiltration system for measuring hydraulic conductivity used by the NRCS in Texas. Currently, Leo is the force behind application development in METER’s hydrology instrumentation including HYPROP and WP4C. He also works in R&D to explore new instrumentation for water and nutrient movement in soil.
