Tensiometers measure the water availability to plant roots and so can be used in irrigation and crop management. They are designed to be permanently installed in the growing medium, which they equilibrate with and measure the ‘soil suction’ used by the roots to remove water from the soil. This is a simple, effective and low cost Tensiometer that is particularly suitable for applications such as irrigation scheduling and crop management.
