Paper Abstract

This work deals with the development of fiber optic sensors for the measurement of soil moisture and temperature over large areas. It has been carried out within the Regional Project "Sensoristica in Fibra Ottica per il Risparmio Idrico - SFORI". The sensor system is based on the fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) technology and is aimed at optimizing the irrigation practice in order to guarantee a sustainable water resources management. Two sensors networks, each one based on FBG thermo-hygrometers, have been realized and installed in two experimental sites. Preliminary results envisages good perspectives for a massive usage of the proposed technology.
