[USPRwire, Thu Aug 01 2019] Market Research Hub (MRH) has recently broadcasted a new study to its broad research portfolio, which is titled as "Global Soil Tensiometer Market Insights, Forecast to 2025" provides an in-depth analysis of the Soil Tensiometer with the forecast of market size and growth.
Treatment 2 (***) 1 X2 (2) MJ/day 2 Y1 (3)[degrees]C/day 3 Z2 (5)Kpa/day 4 X2 (2)& Y2 (3)& Z2' (5) (*) Water potential in soil will be measured with tensiometer that will be connected to the computer system; (**) This strategy will combine treatments of experiment 1, 2, 3 and compared to the conventional irrigation; (***) Once values reached threshold-value, irrigation will happen for a determined duration.
The controller (Figure 1) uses the energy fluctuations inside a tensiometer located in the active root zone of the crop to mechanically enable and cut-off irrigation when the soil-water tension (SWT) reaches a pre-set threshold.
In order to equilibrate with the moisture in the soil column, the tensiometers were partially filled with water before inserting them into the soil column used for drainage experiments.
Surface tension of aqueous BHAC solution was measured by a Du Nuoy ring tensiometer at 25C.
Shoulder strength was measured for the EC test, FC test and hug-up test using an electronic digital tensiometer (GT-300, OG Giken, Japan).
Force balance method (e.g., Wilhemy plate method) using the tensiometer was applied to perform the experiments for forced spreading mechanism.
Minimum surface tension and critical micelle concentration of SLJO were estimated using a KRUSS surface tensiometer K11 by Wilhelmy plate method.
Moreover, Koubachi is the only product using a patented soil moisture sensor technology that works like a tensiometer. This technique simulates the plants' roots, measuring the amount of water that is actually available to the plant, and that's what matters to the plant.
