Supporting Australian Farm Decision Makers

Erratic weather makes stored soil water a critical part of profitable cropping in Australia.

Fast and reliable estimates of soil water status contribute to more informed decision-making.

SoilWaterApp estimates soil water using Bureau of Meteorology data (from Silo) and local rainfall records. Push probe and soil water sensor readings can also be used.

Data is securely stored and available from multiple devices.
