Sentek’s flagship product, EnviroSCAN®, has become the most widely used soil water and salinity profile measurement system in the world. Proven benefits in dryland farming include measuring effective rainfall and plant water use throughout the season. It is also an invaluable tool to aid in forecasting crop yields through being able to visualise subsoil moisture reserves. Using Sentek’s EnviroSCAN® probe, growers are achieving substantial fertiliser savings and improved plant nutrition through being able to confidently target applications only at the correct soil moisture levels for effective plant uptake. They are also able to better understand the impact of management practices on soil water storage and baseline salinity levels.
Sentek has recently launched the NEW EnviroSCAN® Flat Cap probe, which enables the probe to be installed so that the top of the probe sits flush with the ground surface. This is an exciting new development for dryland agriculture, as it enables the probe to be installed out of harm’s way, while still measuring moisture levels close to the soil surface. The probe is still fully accessible and serviceable and can be installed at depths tailored to the field conditions.
