Soil Type

Sensors and DIY

Hello everyone,

I just took a look into my measurements which raised to following question to me: Regarding the soil moisture percentage, for which soil type are these values calculated? Does the sensor use a standard soil type (e.g. sand or loam)?

If someone knows this, I would be helped a lot.

Regards from Holland,

Hi Niek. I have an answer from a colleague. The equation for calculating the soil moisture percentage is very general and is not specific to any soil type. We actually don't know what the equation is, although we have asked Flower Power for it a few times. I'm sorry this information can't be more helpful.
