Soil water measuring and managing: know what lies beneath

Plain text source: 
Capacitance soil water probes can provide useful information about soil water data when used with adequate professional support... Computer simulation models predict soil water information based on soil tests, soil characterisations and climate/rainfall data... Soil characterisation is about measuring the ability of the soil to hold water for use by a particular crop - or the size of the soil water 'bucket' - and takes into account potential constraints that affect the soil's ability to store water and plant's ability to extract it...
