Soil Moisture Sensors
Why measure soil moisture?
Soil moisture plays a key role in the life of the plant. Nutrients in the soil solution provide the plant with the food it needs to grow. Water is also essential for regulating plant temperature through the process of transpiration. Plant root systems are better developed when growing in moist soil. Excessive levels of soil moisture, however, can lead to anaerobic conditions that can promote the growth of plant and soil pathogens.
