The Tidbinbilla Soil Moisture Probe webpage has gone live! This means anyone can check out daily records of rainfall, soil moisture and soil temperature at this site. The Tidbinbilla Soil Moisture probe is located on “Congwarra”, in the Paddys River area – on the opposite side of Paddys River Road to the Deep Space Tracking Station.
The probe is one of 19 probes located across the ACT, Southern Tablelands, Slopes and the Monaro (and soon to be on the south coast). It records soil moisture, soil temperature and rainfall at regular intervals. This data is then fed daily onto the Tidbinbilla Soil Moisture Probe webpage in an easy to read and understand format.

In addition, experienced agronomist Matthew Lieschke, Senior Agriculture Advisor, South East Local Land Services and Phil Graham, Graham Advisory prepare regular Spring and Autumn Seasonal Outlooks for landholders across the region to assist landholders to consider options for stock and pasture management going forward, based on a range of data including data from the soil moisture probe. The Spring 2019 Seasonal Outlook will be up on the website shortly – but you can check our previous seasonal outlooks at: https://www.soilmoistureprobes.com.au/seasonal-reports/.Back to News
