AQUAFLEX, available from Mait Industries are unique sensors that measure both soil moisture and soil temperature. Applications of use for these soil sensors include use on an  angle to give a depth profile, in a coil to go around the root ball of trees, in a loop to fit in a confined space etc. Various configurations can be performed with the soil sensors- The 3m long flexible tape can be laid in many differing ways for differing situations. The 3m length means that moisture is measured in a 6 litre volume of soil. This is extremely important given the variability of soil (even in well prepared plots) and non uniformity of water application.

The Aquaflex soil sensors can be in conjunction with other sensors that are more suited for vertical profile measurements, but are very well suited in particular to applications involving monitoring soil moisture in turf, pasture and shallow rooted applications. The Aquaflex sensors have multiple outputs, and frequency for connection to pulse inputs(eg a flow meter in an irrigation controller).  Only soil moisture can be accessed from this sensor output. These sensors also include 4 to 20mA two separate outputs, for soil moisture and soil temperature. For connection to irrigation controllers, data recorders and telemetry systems are included.
