monitoring soil water

Catalogue: GRDC Media
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...

Changes to farming practices and resultant improvements to water storage efficiency, coupled with the high variability in climate, have increased demand for improved understanding of soil water management in agriculture... Investigation of technologies to expedite measurement of soil water has resulted in the development of the tools, SoilMapp and Soil Water Express and improved understanding of the potential for electromagnetic induction (EMI) and spectrometry to contribute to soil water management... If the accuracy of decision support tools is to be increased, there is a continuing need for the characterisation of soils at the paddock or broader spatial scales to fill existing data 'black holes'...
