Illinois Soil
Abstract:The amount of water in the soil is an important factor in the growth of crops. Soil moisture conditions affect many farming operations, such as when to plow, when to plant, and when and how to apply herbicides and fertilizers. For farmers and others in agribusiness, soil moisture conditions are an integral part of the decision-making process. In a dry year, knowledge of soil moisture conditions is critical. Regular monitoring of soil moisture helps the agricultural community pinpoint areas where soil moisture is low and evaluate and forecast the severity of plant stresses.
