The innovative use of electromagnetic (EM) technology is enabling Moree district cropping manager Byron Birch, Rimanui Farms, to proactively manage his production risk by accurately matching crop selection with soil moisture availability... Mr Birch uses a mobile EM38 device to take soil moisture readings across dryland black cracking clay paddocks to generate a comprehensive analysis of soil moisture availability... "The EM38 has the ability to give a tangible figure which can be inputted into a spread sheet much like the probes and it can be used in conjunction with push probes, neutron probes and capacitance probes to verify readings."..

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...
