Abstract

With field preparation starting and planting fast approaching, it is important to know your soil moisture status. Knowing the soil moisture is very important to reduce the impact of field operations on soil compaction. Currently, soil moisture levels across the state are very good. However, as spring progresses, chances for heavy rainstorms increase just as spring field preparation and planting become time sensitive. There are several methods that can be used to evaluate soil moisture in the field that are simple, practical, and relatively fast.
