Visit the Water Potential Theory Section to learn more about soil water potential and ways to measure water potential in both the field and the lab.
Want to know more about calibrating soil moisture sensors? We have written directions on calibrating soil moisture sensors (using methodology adapted from the American Society of Agronomy), a short video on calibrating soil moisture sensors, and an extensive webinar discussing the theory behind soil moisture sensor calibration.
The biggest cause for bad soil moisture sensor data is improper installation. Watch a video showing correct installation techniques of Decagon soil moisture sensors.
