Tensiometers and Irrometers
Use Tensiometers and Irrometers to Measure How Tightly Water is Held in Soil Particles
Schedule irrigation based on how hard plant roots are working when you use tensiometers and irrometers to gauge root function. These are some of the oldest and most accurate water potential instruments used in soil physics. Irrometers and tensiometers act like a dummy root, allowing the soil moisture to interact with the instrument through the ceramic tip. Find soil testing supplies and more at Ben Meadows.
