Problem solving using Soil Water Profile Measurements

Sentek’s soil moisture probes are widely used to manage soil moisture and fertilizer applications in irrigated potato crops. Irrigation and fertigation schedules are based on the information provided by probes on root growth; water content at various depths; fertilizer penetration and use; and irrigation water infiltration and usage rates.  Management benefits from data include yield […]

Precision irrigation delivers quality Onion crop

Placing two probes near the emitter, Sentek and Seminis agronomists could monitor moisture levels through the profile. The insights supported confident decision making, with the water applied keeping levels within the optimal range of moisture for plant growth. Heading in to harvest, the soil profile was gradually dried out, ensuring quality and reducing the risk of fungal disease.
