Summed moisture graph 30cm-100cm profile at monitoring site at Youanmite (NE Vic). Red circle highlights the increase in soil moisture after over 70mm of rain fell in the first week of November.
With the use of a moisture probe, soil water content changes were observed to depths of 60cm. With summer weed control, this moisture has been conserved up to now and will be monitored over summer/autumn to determine if is still available for the 2016 crop.
