STEP-by-step instructions


Keep in Mind

Take your time if the sensors do not pull up easy when you first try to remove them. If your sensor probe is located in a soil texture with higher clay content, please be extra careful removing the sensor. Removing after a rainfall can also be extremely helpful!


Cleaning your sensors

Rinse your sensors in a bucket of clean water to remove leftover soil, then soak them in clean water for at least 30 minutes. Leave your sensors out to air dry. Once dry, leave in a cool dry place, & they will be ready to install again next planting season!
