Toro Irrigation February 29, 2012

The Toro Precision Soil Sensor continuously measures moisture levels in the soil and determines when to allow the irrigation controller to water. There are two “wireless” components to the system – a receiver that hooks up to the irrigation controller, and a sensor that installs in the ground Once installed, the sensor calibrates itself automatically to determine the soil type. Any time the moisture level exceeds the user-defined optimum level for the plant material, the controller is prevented from running any irrigation programs. Communication between the sensor probe and the receiver is completely wireless, with an operating range of up to 500 feet, and installation doesn’t require any digging
