Temporal soil net removal
Currently the temporal soil net, which is measuring soil moisture and soil temperature down to 50cm below ground surface, is removed. The soil net was partly installed in the middle of agricultural used fields, currently wheat is growing there. Since the crop is harvested soon and soil tillage follows, the sensors have to be taken out from the fields. After the farmers field works they will be set up again for the next measuring period.
The very dry conditions in the last week are also visible at this field works. Big drought cracks are present all around and the very dry and hard soil makes it quite a tough job to dig the sensors out.
