Measuring Soil Water Potential to Maximize Farm Water Use
Soil water potential is, in short, the amount of energy it takes for plants to pull water out of the soil, and it’s the limiting factor for how much water in the soil your crops can use.
Listen in as Leo Rivera, research scientist and Director of Scientific Outreach at METER Group, talks us through what soil water potential is and how it can help you make the best use of limited water resources.
