Master class: Secrets of water in soil

Measuring soil water—Everything you need to know

Water content + water potential—Better together

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.

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.

Water content + water potential—better together

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.
