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

Soil moisture sensor -based irrigation reduces water use and nutrient leaching in a commercial nursery
free download

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 calibration for organic soil surface layers
free download

This papers objective is to present generic calibration functions for organic surface layers derived for the soil moisture sensors Decagon ECH2O 5TE and Delta-T ThetaProbe ML2x, using material from northern regions, mainly from the Finnish Meteorological Institutes Arctic

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

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

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

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

Irrigation of St. Augustinegrass with soil moisture sensor and evapotranspiration controllers
free download

Water conservation is a growing issue in the state of Florida due to increased water demands and limited resources. Water withdrawal in Florida, along with California and Texas, accounted for one-fourth of all water withdrawals in the nation for 2000 (Hutson et al

Design of textile moisture sensor for enuresis alarm system
free download

To improve the comfort properties of nocturnal enuresis alarm system, a modular humidity sensor should be replaced with a textile sensor . During research, two-electrode textile moisture sensor has been developed to study its electrical properties. To define the optimal

Proposal of a novel heat dissipation soil moisture sensor
free download

A novel heat dissipation soil moisture sensor with only one bipolar transistor performing as both heating and temperature sensing element is presented. Due to the fact that the power dissipated in the transistor is a function of both the voltage and the current in the transistor, it

Ag thick film microstripline as nondestructive dielectric and moisture sensor for soybean
free download

A cost effective miniaturized Ag thick film microstripline 1in x 1in was used as a nondestructive dielectric and moisture sensor for soybean. The in-touch overlay method provides ease of loading and unloading. The perturbation obtained in the transmittance and

Automated weighing and moisture sensor system to assess the hygrothermal response of wood sheathing and combined membrane-sheathing wall
free download

A weighing system was devised to conduct drying experiments on wood based products that could be used to compare results with those derived from simulation. The experiments were designed to retrieve data on the change in weight of specimens continuously over time from

A BJT Based Soil Moisture Sensor for Irrigation Monitoring
free download

A soil moisture sensor is an integral aspect of the various precise irrigation techniques. This paper focuses on a BJT based soil moisture sensor which can be implemented in a large array spreading throughout an irrigated field. Soil conductivity depends on the moisture
