Want to contribute to the optical moisture sensor project? Tiberius Brastaviceanu | Oct 22 2015
The optical soil moisture sensor is a low cost and open source moisture sensor based on optical technology. It makes soil moisture measurements more accurate, less sensitive to salt content in soils. Moreover, since all the essential components are made of plastic, they don't rust. Find out more on the SENSORICA website.
Hi Keith, we should also look at this for a garden water system in the community. We could connect this with Paul Pollack's Solar water systems to be very efficient on water use both in the plots and in the garden walls. Caroline can give you info about Paul.
@KeabetsweKeithMosumane - here's a link to pictures of sensor picasaweb.google.com /113604040352055118647 /OpticalMoistureSensor
thanks for the prompt, @WarrenTeBrugge ... @TiberiusBrastaviceanu and @KeabetsweKeithMosumane - I'll send an email introducing you to Dr. Paul Polak (www.paulpolak.com/)..) Could get interesting!
Here's some info on SunWater's solar pump system www.indiegogo.com/projects /sunwater-affordable-solar-powered-pumps -for-poor-farmers#/
Apologies @WarrenTeBrugge! Just reading this now. You can tag people by typing @... Tagged person will get an email alert.
