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.
Moisture Release Curves—Revealed
A soil moisture release curve is a powerful tool used to predict plant water uptake, deep drainage, runoff, and more.
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.
Choosing the Right Water Potential Sensor
In this 20-minute webinar, METER research scientist Leo Rivera discusses how to choose the right field water potential sensor for your application.
Hydraulic conductivity—Why you Need It. How to Measure It.
If you want to predict how water will move within your soil system, you need to understand hydraulic conductivity because it governs water flow.
Hydraulic Conductivity—Which Instrument is Right for You?
Leo Rivera, research scientist at METER, teaches which situations require saturated or unsaturated hydraulic conductivity and the pros and cons of common methods.
Bonus Video: How to Interpret Soil Moisture Data
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.
The TEROS 12 is a long-life, accurate, easy-to-install sensor that combines METER’s legendary technology with an ultra-rugged form and a new calibration procedure to deliver an unbeatable price-to-performance ratio.
