The 100SMT is an accurate soil moisture probe for monitoring water content and soil temperature.
The oscillation frequency is related to the dielectric permittivity of the surrounding medium.
The relation between the permittivity and the soil moisture depends on the soil type and the soil temperature. Therefore all dielectric measurement techniques require a material and temperature dependent calibration for highest precision.
