UGA Study Shows Soil-Moisture Sensor System Slashes Nursery Water Use by 70 percent

Breakthroughs in computer-linked soil moisture sensors have displayed a reduction in container nurseries’ water usage by 70 percent. University of Georgia researchers have developed a new automated micro-irrigation system that help significantly lower the amount of water needed to grow nursery plants. These technologies benefit the state’s water supply while providing growers with the ability to cultivate healthier, hardier plants with more ease.
