Soil Moisture Sensor is used to monitor the moisture of the soil by measuring volumetric water content of soil using principle of capacitance. Increasing scarcity of water resource, has increased adoption of the soil moisture sensors market in a wide range of applications in areas such as agriculture, sports turf, weather forecasting, forestry residential, landscaping and ground care, research studies, and construction. Globally demand for soil moisture sensor is being driven by gradual shift in the climatic conditions and increasing awareness among government agencies. The key challenge faced by soil moisture sensor market is lack of awareness among farmers. The increasing adoption of soil moisture sensor in applications sports segment, residential society and others provides a greater opportunity for the market.
