Tensiometers

Open the Tensiometers page

Tensiometers are used to measure soil tension, which is directly related to the amount of soil moisture available to plants. Capillarity is established between the waterfilled tensiometers and the soil water via a ceramic cup or tip. As soil water tension increases, water is drawn by suction from the tensiometer and the negative pressure created, which is representative of soil tension, may be read from a vacuum gauge.
