Extensive tests of watermark-based devices with soil temperature have started!

We are starting extensive tests of watermark-based device with a soil temperature sensor which allows for centibar conversion at the device itself. 2 variants will be tested: a 1-watermark and a 2-watermark device. With 2 watermarks, water movement in the soil can be better determined. The objectives are to determine the best configuration tradeoff in terms of cost vs accuracy with […]
