Monitor pasture moisture

 Resize text         Printer-friendly version of this article Printer-friendly version of this article

A dairy producer from new zealand has developed a simple water-moisture probe to help monitor pasture moisture. The unit features a microcomputer and two sensing blocks made of modified gypsum. It runs on three small batteries, which enables users to leave the sensor in the field throughout the season. A series of lights linked to the sensing blocks display soil-moisture levels so users can tell at a glance whether the crop has adequate water.
