Soil temperature is simply the measurement of the warmth in the soil. Soil temperature directly affects plant growth. Plants won’t grow and the seeds won’t germinate if the soil temperature is too low or if soil temperature is high, the crops and the roots will get affect with fungus or other diseases. Soil temperature influences aeration, soil moisture content, and the availability of plant nutrients.
Heat is the catalyst for most of the biological processes in soil. Therefore monitoring soil temperature is notably critical, particularly when the plants are growing.
geoBHUMI measures soil temperature 24X7. Farmers can get access to the data Anytime And From Anywhere. It will help farmers to maintain the optimum soil temperature for plants.
