Porosity specialises in soil moisture, weather & water monitoring for dryland & irrigated agriculture, horticulture and the environment.
What is Porosity?
DEFINITION: the ratio of the volume of pores to the total volume. The porosity of soil is determined by texture, structure and compaction.
RELEVANCE TO AGRICULTURE: determines how quickly water infiltrates, how much water is retained for plant use, and how easily roots develop in the soil.

Control Yield & Quality
Soil moisture is the most important input that influences plant growth & development.
Predict when you will run out of water; know when there is too much.
All inputs can be applied with maximum efficiency; irrigators save 30% water, dryland save 50% fertiliser.
