Is a biSensor effective in a sloping landscape?

If your site includes slopes, you’ve probably faced significant irrigation challenges related to the topography. However, if the top, slope, and bottom of the hills are irrigated by different zones, you have the ideal setting for using soil moisture sensors to manage the irrigation in this challenging environment. Simply install a sensor in each of the zones, and then set up a watering strategy for each location.

If the hills are irrigated by only one zone, you can still benefit from installing a sensor on the slope and monitoring the soil moisture levels in the location that is most prone to runoff.

For more information about using Baseline's soil moisture sensors on slopes, refer to page 18 of Watering with Soil Moisture Sensors.
