Watermark - Interpretation of the data

The patented Watermark sensor for determining soil water tension in kPa has been in use worldwide since 1978. But what exactly is soil water tension? Soil water tension refers to the force with which water is retained in the soil. It is measured in units such as centibars (cb) or kilopascals (kPa). This tension is caused by the attractive forces between the [...]
