Soil moisture sensor meter is one of the main limiting factors for crop growth. With the intensification of climate change and climate uncertainty. Droughts, floods, and droughts occur frequently. The impact on agricultural production has become increasingly prominent. The threat posed is also growing. Measures such as agricultural irrigation or drainage should be carried out in a timely manner. Can effectively reduce the impact on agricultural production yield and quality. It can be seen that the monitoring and forecasting of soil moisture is an important agricultural activity. It is of great significance to guarantee food security and agricultural production.
The necessity of soil moisture monitor
1. Requirements for addressing climate change
With the intensification of global climate change. And in recent years, climate uncertainty has become increasingly obvious. The threat of droughts and floods to agricultural production activities is increasing. The impact on agricultural production is growing. The problem of drought and water shortage is more prominent than that of floods. waiting to be solved. Therefore, it is imperative to monitor and forecast soil moisture. In order to make corresponding drought response measures. Reduce the threat of frequent and sudden droughts and floods to agricultural production and damage to crop growth. Promote the transformation of agricultural development mode and sustainable agricultural development. Ultimately guarantee national food security and provide guarantees.
2. Important equipment for water-saving irrigation
Agricultural irrigation water accounts for more than 50% of China’s water consumption. It is the main water user. According to statistics, facing the status quo of drought. Most of them choose irrigation. However, due to the backward irrigation technology. The management level is not high. For a long time, the utilization rate of agricultural irrigation water has been low, less than 50%, and the waste of water resources is very serious. Soil moisture is the key limiting factor for crop growth. Accurate collection and forecast of soil moisture information is the key link and basic support for the promotion of water-saving irrigation, scientific water use, high-efficiency irrigation, and optimal regulation. It is to prevent drought and control drought. The key guarantee to promote the sustainable development of agricultural production.
3. Development requirements for precision agriculture
Soil moisture is used to determine the amount of water in the crop soil. Understand the changes in soil moisture. It can effectively avoid the occurrence of drought. Reduce damage loss. At the same time, it also has important guiding significance for the development of refined agricultural irrigation. The soil moisture monitoring system can realize the automatic monitoring of soil moisture. Through accurate, timely and effective data accumulation and analysis. It will not only help to prevent agricultural drought. Guide scientific irrigation production. And it can further improve the soil moisture monitoring network. Provide strong support for the development of cultivated land quality protection and improvement. volume_upcontent_copyshare
