Hydrology 101: The Science Behind the SATURO Infiltrometer
Dr. Gaylon S. Campbell teaches the basics of hydraulic conductivity and the science behind the SATURO automated dual head infiltrometer.
Publish More. Work Less. Introducing ZENTRA Cloud
METER research scientist Dr. Colin Campbell discusses how ZENTRA Cloud data management software simplifies the research process and why researchers can’t afford to live without it.
Soil Moisture 101: Need-to-Know Basics
Soil moisture is more than just knowing the amount of water in soil. Learn basic principles you need to know before deciding how to measure it.
Soil Moisture 201: Moisture Release Curves—Revealed
A soil moisture release curve is a powerful tool used to predict plant water uptake, deep drainage, runoff, and more.
Soil Moisture 301: Hydraulic Conductivity—Why You Need It. How to Measure it.
If you want to predict how water will move within your soil system, you need to understand hydraulic conductivity because it governs water flow.
Soil Moisture 102: Water Content Methods—Demystified
Dr. Colin Campbell compares measurement theory, the pros and cons of each method, and why modern sensing is about more than just the sensor.
Soil Moisture 202: Choosing the Right Water Potential Sensor
METER research scientist Leo Rivera discusses how to choose the right field water potential sensor for your application.
Water Management: Plant-Water Relations and Atmospheric Demand
Dr. Gaylon Campbell shares his newest insights and explores options for water management beyond soil moisture. Learn the why and how of scheduling irrigation using plant or atmospheric measurements. Understand canopy temperature and its role in detecting water stress in crops. Plus, discover when plant water information is necessary and which measurement(s) to use.
How to Improve Irrigation Scheduling Using Soil Moisture
Dr. Gaylon Campbell covers the different methods irrigators can use to schedule irrigation and the pros and cons of each.
Soil Moisture 302: Hydraulic Conductivity—Which Instrument is Right for You?
Leo Rivera, research scientist at METER teaches which situations require saturated or unsaturated hydraulic conductivity and the pros and cons of common methods.
Predictable Yields using Remote and Field Monitoring
New data sources offer tools for growers to optimize production in the field. But the task of implementing them is often difficult. Learn how data from soil and space can work together to make the job of irrigation scheduling easier.
