Significance to Industry: High quality irrigation water is becoming increasingly scarce and it is becoming more important to use the available water efficiently. One approach to more efficient irrigation is the use of soil moisture sensors to control irrigation. Soil moisture

Soil moisture sensor landscape irrigation controllers: A review of multi-study results and future implications
free download

This is a review article with the objective of summarizing and relating the main findings of different research projects carried out in Florida that evaluated commercially available soil moisture sensor systems (SMSs) for residential irrigation control. The initial goal of the

Smart Irrigation Controllers: How Do Soil Moisture Sensor (SMS) Irrigation Controllers Work
free download

Water is required for the basic growth and maintenance of turfgrass and other landscape plants. When a sufficient amount of water is not present for plant needs, then stress can occur and ultimately lead to reduced quality or death. Irrigation is common in Florida

Development of a wireless sensor network for field soil moisture monitoring
free download

A wireless sensor network system (WSNS) was developed and tested which was able to continuously monitor soil moisture content in a wheat field. The system consisted of 12 wireless nodes with star-type, tiered network architecture. Out of 12 wireless nodes, ten were

Calibration and evaluation of an improved low-cost soil moisture sensor
free download

Irrigation scheduling in agriculture and turf requires a soil moisture sensor (SMS) that is accurate, reliable, and low-cost. Although there are many SMS on the market, their use is limited because they fall short in one of these areas. A need exists for a sensor that offers

Wireless soil moisture sensor networks for precision irrigation scheduling
free download

Advanced nutrient management aims to optimise plant nutrient use and minimise deleterious environmental effects. Precision irrigation tools tackle this issue by controlling soil moisture status related to irrigation events, minimising drainage and run-off events, and

Implementation of linear trace moisture sensor by nano porous thin film moisture sensor and NLAmp
free download

Almost all type of moisture sensors has a non-linear response. With out linearization it is difficult to apply such a non-linear sensor in electronics circuits, specially in analog electronics. Non linear sensor and transducers characteristic can be linearized using analog

Design of textile moisture sensor for enuresis alarm system
