Abstract or Summary
  • One of the most important tools we have been using at the Malheur Agricultural Experiment Station over the past two decades is the granular matrix sensor (GMS, Watermark Soil Moisture Sensor, Irrometer Co., Riverside, CA), which measures soil moisture. It is only about 3 inches long and normally is buried vertically in the ground. Like gypsum blocks, GMS sensors operate on the principle of variable electrical resistance. The electrodes inside the GMS are embedded in granular fill material below a gypsum wafer. Additional granular matrix is above the wafer in the fabric tube, where water enters and exits the sensor.
