A must see for new farmers! Introduction to Soil Moisture Monitoring


In recent years, the state has attached great importance to the prevention and control of soil pollution, and has issued a series of relevant policies, regulations and standards and other regulatory documents.On January 1, 2019, the "Soil Pollution Prevention and Control Law of the People's Republic of China" came into force, filling the legislative gap in the field of soil pollution prevention in China. With the promulgation and implementation of the "Soil Ten" and "Soil Law", soil pollution treatment and remediation-related supporting standards, guidelines, guidelines and management methods have also been introduced, making the construction of China's soil remediation laws and regulations and standards show a trend of serialization and systematization, effectively promoting the prevention and control of soil pollution in China.




Deeply implement the "Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Soil Pollution" to promote the improvement of soil environmental quality, the Ministry of Finance issued a special fund for soil pollution prevention and control in 2021 in advance, totaling 2.8 billion yuan. As of January 24, 2021, there have been Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, Liaoning, Jilin, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and other provinces and cities have successively issued a public notice about the central soil pollution prevention and control funds in 2021.



In the "soil ten" of the entire work plan, soil pollution survey and related monitoring and assessment is a vital part of the longest, workload, the most human resources, involving the most equipment part of the work.


As the basis for good soil pollution prevention, treatment, soil monitoring is bound to speed up. It can be said that soil monitoring is throughout to soil pollution prevention and control, soil monitoring industry will become a major windfall of the soil prevention and control industry.




What is soil moisture monitoring?


As a large agricultural country, how to achieve timely and effective drought prevention and drought relief and water-saving irrigation is one of the key tasks of modern agriculture. To better accomplish this work, we need to use professional soil moisture monitoring system to establish soil moisture monitoring points, and use the system to build a soil moisture monitoring network to support the rapid development of modern agriculture with networked coverage and refined monitoring data.
