Think of Your Entire Field as Your Gas Tank
Try to imagine our vehicle centric world without some of the instruments and gauges that someone once invented and that today we take completely for granted.
Without something as simple as a speedometer, we would all go as fast as we judged possible. Turn signals are another simple invention, but without them…well the ensuing chaos is not only easy to imagine but actual reality.
Without the gas gauge in our cars, we wouldn’t know how close to full or how close to empty we are and imaginably we would stop often to “top it off” just in case we might be running low. As expensive and inefficient as that would be, there is no alternative short of running out of gas altogether.
Many of these elements of “gaugelessness” exist for today’s Farmer because in that world, those very basic and elemental gauges and instruments have not yet caught up to the Farm.
AquaSpy’s Dual Moisture Gauge provides separate moisture level readings for the Active Root Zone and the entire soil profile, so you can see the whole picture. Roots often interact at 4, 5 or 6 foot depths and each layer of the soil is its’ own distinct environment, so while the top may appear parched, the Active Root Zone may well be quite sufficiently nourished.
