How large is the sphere of influence for a Baseline biSensor?

The dimensions of the area that Baseline's soil moisture sensor reads will vary depending on factors that affect electrical conductivity such as soil type, compaction, the amount of moisture in the soil, and whether there are any additives in the soil.

In most situations, the sensor reads soil moisture 1 to 2 inches on either side of the sensor blade. Moisture must be in contact with the blade for the sensor to register a reading.
