Dr. Doug Cobos differentiates water potential from water content, discusses the theory, application, and key components of water potential.
Dr. Marc Van Iersel discusses drawbacks of excessive irrigation and strategies to reduce nursery water use to increase profits and quality.
How to use PRI and NDVI to monitor environmental conditions that adversely affect plant growth.
A two-part series focused on interpreting soil moisture data. Both parts of the series were run as panel discussions.
Dr. Rick Gill shares techniques scientists can use to deal with the overwhelming challenges of big data.
Dr. Doug Cobos teaches about the concept of a single point soil water characteristic curve and a study performed to try and validate the concept.
Learn what an SDI-12 network does, pros/cons, how to design and build your own sensor bus, and troubleshooting.
Dr. Paolo Castiglione presents on soil mechanics and the theory behind soil moisture measurements.
Discover the Photochemical Reflectance Index (PRI) and what it can tell you. Also learn about remote sensing of PRI.
Dr. Steve Garrity discusses the theory behind LAI measurement, direct and indirect methods, variability, things to consider, and applications.
Dr. Gil Bohrer discusses how to model the interactions between vegetation structure and the movement of water along the hydro-bio-atmosphere continuum.
Learn about advances in lysimeter technology and the advantages of newer instrument design.
Dr. Steven Garrity shows how NDVI is being used in current research and demonstrates how to overcome some of the NDVI’s limitations.
After discussing limitations of the transient line heat source method, Dr. Cobos gives practical considerations to improve the quality of fluid measurements.
Dr. John Lea Cox discusses strategies to reduce nursery water use and increase yield, profit, efficiency, and quality.
Macropore models that include geometry of the macropores tend to be complicated. The M&M model is a simple macropore model that requires only nine parameters.
Dr. Steve Garrity discusses NDVI and PRI theory, methods, limitations, applications, and more.
Dr. Colin Campbell discusses details regarding different ways to measure soil moisture and the theory/application behind each measurement.
Learn the skills needed to create a soil water characteristic curve with wet end and dry end data that actually match up in the middle.
In this webinar, Leo Rivera explores refill techniques for METER tensiometers and the HYPROP
Learn water potential instrument theory, including the challenges of measuring water potential and how to choose and use various water potential instruments.
Dr. Jonyun Kim explains why soil moisture sensors help control substrate water contents, estimate plant water use, and understand drought physiology.
