Three types of sensor data processing applications with different soil moisture sensors are being compared in different areas of West Tennessee as shown in the figure below. The three irrigation management software packages and sensors are: 1) Zentr​a Cloud​ from Meter​ with MPS-2 sensors (matric potential), 2) AquaSpy with capacitance probes (volumetric), and 3) Precision King with Watermark sensors (tension)​. The irrigation management software can be accessed via the website links at the bottom of the page using the UserIDs and Passwords provided. All three soybean sites can be viewed in real time within each software package.
