  • Knowledge of soil moisture is needed to understand crop water use, hydrology, and microclimate. A reliable, rapid technique is needed, and recently an impedance soil moisture probe (Theta Probe) has been accepted by the scientific community. The purposes of this study were to calibrate the probe for soils of Central Iowa through field sampling, to determine the number of samples needed for calibration, and to determine the effect of temperature on calibration. Laboratory calibration was… CONTINUE READING
