This session will focus on soil moisture sensing technology and practical use of sensors by superintendents. We'll begin with moisture sensor design, technology and theory, then move to field locating sensors.

The additional infrastructure required to relay data to turf managers will also be discussed. Specific examples of moisture sensors used to efficiently manage water resources while maintaining optimum soil moisture for healthy turf will conclude the program.

Speakers will include soil moisture sensor manufacturer's representatives and golf course superintendents.
