On Tuesday, Ontario announced a major upgrade to Ontario’s soil measurement system.
Ontario’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs will now have a meter on every farm.
It will provide real-time soil phm readings on crop residue and water quality and will be available in all Ontario counties, the province said.
The Ontario Met Office is currently the province’s primary soil phimeter.
However, the Met Office was the only agency in the world to receive a funding agreement for its operation in the 1980s.
The Met Office also maintains a database of soil measurements in Ontario, as well as in the U.S., Australia, South Africa and several other countries.
It’s not the first time Ontario has upgraded its soil measurement.
Last year, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry upgraded its system with more sensitive sensors, improved software and new equipment, to allow it to collect soil phmin measurements for use in research.
“The technology is up to date,” said Ontario Minister of Agriculture Kevin Flynn in a statement.
“We are confident this will be a long-lasting, reliable and reliable system.”
The MetOffice is also upgrading its water monitoring system.
In April, the agency announced a new, upgraded water quality sensor, which it says is capable of providing real-Time soil phmet readings on water quality.
The new sensor, called the Hydro-Tek, will be deployed in all parts of Ontario and will collect soil-borne pollution, soil and water samples, as needed.
“With a new sensor and improved software, Hydro-Technic has demonstrated that it is capable and capable of measuring and recording soil quality in Ontario,” the MetOffice said in a news release.
“This is the first significant step in the transition to a more comprehensive and effective soil measurement tool.”
