Abstract/Contents:"Electromagnetic sensors for measuring soil water content, such as time domain reflectometry (TDR) or frequency domain reflectometry (FDR) sensors are increasingly used to manage turfgrass irrigation. Some of these new sensors also have the capability to transmit soil water readings wirelessly, allowing for the monitoring and processing of real-time, continuous soil water and salinity data over long distances. Studies to investigate the accuracy of commercially available sensors in a variety of soil types over a range of volumetric water content (VWC) and salinity levels have been carried out at New Mexico State University. Laboratory experiments were conducted to evaluate the accuracy of several sensors in a loamy sand and a loam soil over a wide range of soil salinity levels. Overall, sensors reliably measured VWC in all soil types at all salinity levels, however data suggest that different soil types require separate calibration. Moreover, accuracy of the sensor readings can be further improved if differential calibration is applied for different salinity levels."
