Soil moisture measurements. The soil moisture status requires periodic measurements in the field, from which one can project when the next irrigation should occur and what depth of water should be applied. Conversely, such data can indicate how much has been applied and its uniformity over the field.   This study has identified (i) the importance of knowing the depth over which the near-surface soil moisture measurements are representative (i.e., observation depth), (ii) soil porosity and Cited by:

All of the technologies discussed above provide a measure of soil moisture in a very small volume of soil, they can be very labour intensive and require many such measures to describe the moisture content across a field. What has been lacking is a measurement technique that works at the field . Field Book Forward Purpose. The following instructions, definitions, concepts, and codes are a field guide for making or reading soil descriptions and sampling soils as presently practiced in the USA. .

Given that crop growth is strongly coupled to soil moisture, developing reliable growth curves requires a detailed understanding of soil moisture at the field-scale. Typically, it is impractical to collect soil samples to adequately assess soil moisture that represents both spatial distribution at the field Author: J PhillipsAndrew, K NewlandsNathaniel, H L LiangSteve, H EllertBenjamin. Measurement of soil moisture content by gravimetric method The soil moisture content may be expressed by weight as the ratio of the mass of water present to the dry to the dry weight of the soil File Size: 90KB.
