Agricultural Soil Moisture Sensors and Potential Use of Nanomaterials in Fabrication of Soil Moisture Sensors
The soil consists of organic matter, air, mineral matter and water. These components played an important role in the growth and development of plants. The soil has a number of categories. The basis of classification also differs between disciplines. For instance, soil taxonomists and others are completely different from the definition of engineers. Soil can usually be graded on the basis of soil consistency and grain size. The soil has various properties and has an effect on the distribution of the soil moisture. Some of its characteristics are the composition of the soil, thermal conductivity, color, electrical conductivity and soil color. Various soil classification methods are available. This paper provides a study and potential preparation of the sensors for soil moisture from nonmaterial. The soil introduction is discussed, the role of nanotechnology in the agricultural field, the definition of soil moisture, the need to detect soil humidity and the methods of detecting it. Several researchers also address the function of detecting this moisture content of the soil parameter. Ultimately, on the basis of current work, the judgment will be made, specific suggestions and future prospects.
