Soil Moisture and Temperatures

We have soil sensors buried in the ground at the levels indicated below.
Each level has a temperature probe and a moisture sensor.

Moisture is measured in ' cb ' with range of 0 to 200
with 0 being totally saturated and anything over 100 being extremely dry.

Centibar Reading Soil Condition
The centibar (cb) is an agricultural unit of soil water tension (water pressure on plant roots)

Saturated Soil.  Occurs for a day or two after rain or irrigation.


Soil is adequately wet (except coarse sands which are drying out at this range).


Usual range to water (except heavy clay soils). Water at the upper end of this range in cool humid climates and with higher water-holding capacity.


Usual range to irrigate heavy clay soils.


Soil is becoming dangerously dry for maximum production.
