About Soil-Moisture Sensors

Soil-moisture sensors are installed below ground at minimum and maximum root depths for specific landscaping. Soil-moisture sensors are operated by matching the soil-moisture level in the upper-level sensor with a sensor set in the lowest root zone. Any difference in moisture level between the upper and lower sensors and the corresponding valves are shut down. Therefore, by using the soil moisture sensors, plantation owners save water and eliminate needless irrigation when the soil already has adequate moisture.

The analysts forecast the global soil moisture sensors market to grow at a CAGR of 14.56% during the period 2016-2020.

New Report Released: - Global Soil Moisture Sensors Market 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global soil moisture sensors market: Acclima, AquaCheck, Decagon Devices, Delta-T Devices, IRROMETER, Sentek, Stevens Water Monitoring Systems, and The Toro.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “Introduction of wireless sensor will be a key trend for market growth. Soil moisture sensors help measure the moisture content of landscapes on a real-time basis. A new technology that is gaining momentum in the market is the introduction of wireless sensors. Wireless networks help gather local soil moisture data for optimal irrigation from irrigation zones. This data helps control the irrigation system in order to keep soil within the predetermined zones at optimal moisture levels. Apart from monitoring and recording data from soil-moisture sensors and irrigation flow meters, the system manages, analyzes, and presents data with a web-accessible analytical software package, which can enable central management of multiple landscape areas.”

According to the report, maintenance of sports turf will be a key driver for market growth. The importance of managing turfs meant for sports like golf, football, and rugby is the primary reason for the demand for soil moisture sensors. The most important factor in maintaining sports turfs is managing water content. This factor affects the performance in terms of ball roll and bounce, and it also affects the growth of the grass, breakdown of organic matter, the ability of nutrients to move to the roots, and buildup within the soil or as a thatch, fauna and flora populations within the root zone (including pathogen populations), and trafficking of the green by club members and grounds staff. Therefore, soil water has a critical role to play in turf health. Apart from the ability to monitor soil moisture across a turf to provide information on the variability of moisture, it can also focus on drainage issues, potential turf stress onset, the evenness of irrigation, or hydrophobicity development. Therefore, accurate and reliable measurement of soil water is an important management tool.

Further, the report states that soil moisture sensor gets affected due to lightning protection and will be a major challenge for the market. Some of the soil moisture sensors are subject to danger from lighting, as these sensors are kept in the open field. This is especially true when these sensors are installed at a distance from the data logger or readout device, which monitors the wetness, and when data logger has its own ground connections. When lightning strikes nearby, there can be large differences in ground potential between the two locations, and current flows through the interconnecting wires and the sensitive circuit elements. Therefore, lightning strikes can cause extensive damage to the soil moisture sensors even though they are buried.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
