Sensors manage soil moisture well despite extreme temperatures

Extremely high temperatures in the Netherlands over the past week with five days over 30 degrees and an all-time high of 38,9 measured at our RMA weather station. Despite the harsh conditions our sensors were able to help the growers to manage their soil moisture levels well without getting into drought stress.  The examples below show that both the trickle tape (left) and the rain gun (right)  were able to maintain the readings in the safe, green zone.
