Soil Temperature Sensor ManufacturersThese devices measure the temperature of soil. They are normally water-proof and can be buried. Soil temperature is one of the most parameters in agriculture. It dictates when seeds will germinate, and how fast plants will grow. Failure to monitor and protect plants from temperature extremes can result in stunted and frost bitten plants.
- Vegetronix - Vegetronix specializes in low cost soil moisture sensor probes, grow lights, data logers, and SDI-12 protocol translators, and irrigation systems and solutions. Their moisture sensor probes are sensitive and accurate enough to be used in research grade instrumentation, but because of their extreme low cost they can be deployed on a massive scale in irrigation systems.
