Hi folks,

I’m new to this forum, hope is still active even though the last post dates 2 years ago.

To the point: I was experimenting with Dan Tripp’s code in Python and it works great for the beginning. A friend of mine has a handful of moisture sensors from Plantlink and I thought it would be much more accurate to use directly an average soil moisture value for adjusting the ET values calculated with the Penman-Monteith formula. Since the ET values are calculated based on the air humidity, I do not know yet how to integrate the known soil moisture in the entire picture.

Any ideas?
