Spatial and continuous soil monitoring is required for assessing impacts of land use and management on soil quality over large area. In order to validate soil moisture data obtained by satellite remote-sensing and direct soil moisture sensor, we are testing real-time monitoring of soil information in agricultural fields using Field Server with soil moisture sensors.
