Soil moisture mapping
is crucial for golf courses, soccer fields, etc. to provide optimal playing conditions, maintain healthy turf, conserve water and resources, reduce costs, and fulfill environmental and safety obligations.
It enables sports field managers to make informed decisions concerning irrigation application and turf maintenance, ultimately enhancing the overall sports experience for players and minimizing the environmental footprint of the course.
Since soil profiles can have significant spatial variability in terms of moisture content, single point measurements can provide information only about a specific location where the measurement is taken and may not represent the overall moisture conditions across the entire course.
Areal soil moisture measurements
offer a more comprehensive and accurate understanding of soil moisture distribution.
The TurfGrassMapper is a versatile and valuable tool for mapping soil moisture due to its non-invasiveness, rapid data collection, high spatial resolution, depth profiling capability, adaptability to different soil types, and ability to provide quantitative data. It empowers sport ground managers to make informed irrigation decisions, conserve resources, maintain turf health, and enhance the overall sporting experience for players.
