SoilWatch 10

SoilWatch 10 is a soil moisture sensor which allows you to measure relative water content in the soil. It’s far more superior to cheap resistive soil moisture sensors which you can buy anywhere. In our sensor design, there are no exposed electrodes which corrode within few weeks. Whats more the reads will almost not drift over time or with temperature changes. Our sensor will give the same readings regardless of supply voltage. Sensor design makes it waterproof and weatherproof. It can be buried in soil for an extended period of time without adverse effects on accuracy.
