Pakistan being an agricultural country relies on proper water management and soil monitoring. The dependency on irrigation is related to the arid conditions that occur in most of the country. Proper monitoring systems such as Sentek Enviroscan tracks moisture, temperature, and salinity in the soil.
It helps to show the effectiveness and depth of infiltration of rainfall and irrigation, amount of water uptake and evapotranspiration from different parts of the root zone, active depth of root zone at different times of the growing season, deep drainage, and fluctuating water tables.
The following list is considered as potential advantages of surface and subsurface monitoring systems when properly managed and/or when site conditions and cropping systems allow the advantage to be realized.
More effective use of water – Evaporation of the soil, ground drainage and profound percolation are decreased or eliminated significantly. Seasonal precipitation infiltration and retention can be improved with drier soils with less soil crusting.
The system may be used to track germination in some cases, depending on the depth of the dripline, the flow rate, and the soil constraints.
Improved utilization possibilities for degraded soils – Smaller and more frequent monitoring system may retain a more coherent and smaller groundwater matrix capacity that may decrease salinity risks.
The Drill & Drop by Sentek Enviroscan is a fully encapsulated, easy to install soil measurement probe. It is available with moisture, salinity and temperature sensors at every 10cm depth.
Farm Dynamic Pakistan is an authorized dealer of Enviroscan surface and subsurface monitoring system. The system combines soil moisture, temperature, and salinity readings to see what is happening in the soil profile. Contact us today to book a quote.
