Welcome to the Soil Moisture Network for the Tablelands and Monaro region. The network of 14 soil moisture probes are strategically positioned across the landscape from Delegate and Cooma in the south to Braidwood, Gunning and Bigga in the north.
The network is a partnership between the South East Local Land Services, Tablelands Farming Systems and Monaro Farming Systems that aims to arm farmers and land managers with better soil moisture information to help measure and guide management decisions across critical times of the year.
Click on the locations to access real time soil moisture and soil temperature measurements at various levels down to a depth of 1m. Each site also features an automatic rain gauge. seasonal forecasting reports are released each autumn and spring, providing information on pasture production over a three month period.
