USGA Summary Points:Hand held TDR sensors can help in turfgrass water conservation efforts and in improving playing conditions Soil moisture readings between two replicate TDR 300 sensors with a rod length of 7.5 cm (3") did not differ from one another across a wide range of soil salinities. Soil sensors estimated moisture in a USGA sand accurately at salinity levels of ECe < 5 dS m-1. Different salinity levels need separate calibration for ECe > 5 dS m-1 if the absolute soil moisture value is of interest rather than the relative difference.
