Soil moisture sensors are defined as sensors that are used in determining moisture/water content in soil. This is a key step towards increased efficiency in agriculture. Soil moisture sensors, along with measuring the water content are also capable of measuring another property of moisture in soil called water potential. Accurate measurement of soil moisture helps farmers with efficient farm practices. Soil moisture sensors are used in a range of other areas such as construction, research (e.g., soil), environmental science, climate research, etc.
