Dr. Yang Recorder | Six key indicators for soil monitoring
Whether it is a technologically advanced today or a technologically backward feudal society, people have never stopped pursuing the quality and output of agricultural products. Fertilization, irrigation, reasonable density planting, grafting, variety cultivation, insecticide, thinning, soil loosening, soil monitoring, etc. are all to improve the quality and yield of agricultural products.

Soil moisture, nutrients, air and temperature are the four major factors affecting soil. Planting is inseparable from soil, which can not only preserve and transform nutrients, but also conserve water and recycle it. The level of soil fertility is not only affected by the appropriate number of each fertility factor, but also depends on the degree of coordination between water, fertilizer, air, and heat under certain conditions. Therefore, if you want to improve the yield and quality of crops, you must study and master the status of various soil fertility factors and their interrelationships.

Soil monitoring is a very important task in modern agricultural production. Through soil monitoring, we can know the data related to soil and soil quality, such as soil temperature and humidity, soil moisture, nutrient content, pH, electrical conductivity and so on. These data obtained from soil monitoring are vital to agricultural production.

Soil temperature monitoring

Soil temperature has a great influence on crop growth, microbial activities in the soil, the transformation of various nutrients, soil water evaporation and movement. For general soil microbial life, the suitable soil temperature is 25℃~37℃, the lowest is 5℃, and the highest does not exceed 45℃~50℃. Within a certain temperature range, the higher the soil temperature, the faster the growth and development of crops; if the soil temperature is too low, microbial activity is weakened, organic matter is difficult to decompose, and the root respiration of crops is reduced, resulting in crop nutrient deficiency and slower growth.

Soil moisture monitoring

Soil moisture refers to the condition of soil moisture content. Soil moisture directly affects the growth quality and speed of crops. In the planting industry, crops cannot directly obtain the inorganic elements in the soil by themselves, and the water in the soil acts as a solvent to dissolve these inorganic elements. The crops absorb soil water through the root system to obtain nutrients and promote growth. Therefore, precipitation or irrigation must be converted into soil. Water can be absorbed by plants.

Soil moisture monitoring

Soil moisture is a data that represents the content of soil moisture. Through soil moisture monitoring, we can know the water content or implement scientific irrigation based on the monitoring data to ensure that crops can not affect yield or quality due to water conditions.

Soil nutrient monitoring

The nutrient in the soil is essential for plant growth. Too little or too much nutrient will affect crop growth, so reasonable soil nutrient content is still very important for crop growth. Soil nutrient monitoring can help us guide fertilization work.

Soil pH monitoring

Soil pH refers to the existence of various chemical and biochemical reactions in the soil, showing different acidity or alkalinity. The strength of the soil's acidity and alkalinity is often measured by its pH. Soils that are too acidic or too alkaline will reduce the availability of soil nutrients to varying degrees, making it difficult to form a good soil structure, seriously inhibiting the activity of soil microorganisms, and affecting the growth and development of various crops. Plants can grow normally in a wide range, but various plants have their own suitable pH.

Soil conductivity monitoring

The conductivity is used to measure the concentration of soluble salts in the solution, and it can also be used to measure the concentration of soluble ions in liquid fertilizers or planting media. Also called EC value. High salinity in the soil will directly cause crops to fail to grow. The main reason is that the ions are transported from high concentration to low concentration. If the soil has a high concentration of soluble ions. It will transport the ions to the roots of the crop. The moisture in the root system of the crop is transported to the soil. Lead to dehydration and death of crop roots.

RS-TRREC-N01-1 Rang Dr. Recorder adopts the latest digital integrated circuit technology and international detection technology to design a brand new intelligent handheld detector.
