The MPS-6 Matric water potential sensor uses ceramic discs and a six-point water potential calibration to take soil water potential measurements across a plant’s available water range in almost any environment. It enables long-term, maintenance-free soil water potential and temperature readings at any depth. Range is from -9 kPa to -100,000 kPa with 10% accuracy in the available water range. The MPS-6 is useful for irrigation monitoring, tracking slope stability, observing forest and range plant available water, and many other soil water applications.
