The assumption of this publication was once born a result of swift bring up of the curiosity in excellence of agricultural creation within the point of either – the standard of uncooked fabric for nutrition creation in addition to within the element of setting security. Agrophysics is a box of technology that makes a speciality of the standard of agriculture as a complete i.e. the interplay among human and setting, in particular the interplay among soil, plant, surroundings and computer. Physics with its legislation, rules and ideas is an efficient device for description of the interactions, in addition to of the result of those interactions. a few features of chemistry, biology and different fields of technological know-how also are taken into consideration. This interdisciplinary technique may end up in holistic description of strategies which should still result in development of the potency of acquiring the uncooked fabrics to make sure a adequate quantity of meals, secure for human well-being. This publication can be considered as the contribution to this description. The reader can locate a few simple to boot, as extra specific elements of the modern agriculture, beginning with the soil features and therapy, plant progress and agricultural items’ homes and processing.

Selection of the most popular non-destructive soil water status measurement methods, from (Skierucha, 2011) 23 24 Advances in Agrophysical Research On the other hand, non-invasive techniques do not introduce any disturbance of the tested material. Particularly, they do not use any probes which must be installed in the measure‐ ment site. , 2009). Remote techniques usually examine only the topsoil and require ground measure‐ ments for the proper calibration. However, they are irreplaceable for the monitoring of the soil properties on a global scale.

Its primary func‐ tion is meeting the growing demand for food. Agriculture creates habitats not only for humans but also for wildlife and plays an important role in sequestering carbon, manag‐ ing watersheds and preserving biodiversity. However, agriculture degrades natural re‐ sources by causing soil erosion, introducing unrecoverable hydrological changes, contributing in groundwater depletion, agrochemical pollution, loss of biodiversity, reduc‐ ing carbon sequestration from deforestation and carbon dioxide emissions from forest fires (Doran, 2002).

The typical measure‐ ment methods of water potential of soils and biomaterials use tensiometers and psychrome‐ ters as the sensing elements. 1. Tensiometry A tensiometer is a device that measures how hard the plant is working to extract water from the soil. It directly measures the physical force that the root system must overcome in order to access water held in the soil (also known as matric potential ϕm). It is built from sealed water-filled tube, equipped with a porous tip installed in the ground to the desired root zone (Or and Wraith, 2002).
