The Superintendents Tool Box: Soil Moisture Meter
NCC GreensSaturday, June 4, 2011
VMWC%=13.4 - is the reading that was taken at a specific point
N004 - tells how many readings have been taken (4 readings).
A=13.8 - is the average of the 4 readings that have been taken.
The readings are logged into the meter and then downloaded and saved into an Excel spreadsheet where we can monitor which areas are wet or dry. The Excel spreadsheet will also display a graph of the readings for the day.
This has become a very important tool in our tool box. There is a large amount of information we have been able to collect from the data we have gathered. We are feel certain we will only get better at providing more consistent playing surfaces as we continue to use this tool.
