AgrHySMo lab. has capabilities and facilities to design TDR-based probes for soil moisture and salinity measurements and to provide independent laboratory calibration of different EM-based sensors and down-hole probes as well as Wireless Sensors Network for real-time monitoring. AgrHySMo lab. builds TDR probes even under the customer’s preference. The guideline suggested by Utah State University (Logan Utah, USA) is followed in the construction process.Sophisticated platforms are used for indoor sensor calibration, whereas simplified protocols are usually suggested for field calibration.
