Trough this tool, agrometeorologists receive data on soil moisture and temperature and record the results in special agrometeorological books in the regions of the Republic of Tajikistan . At the same time, field data are sent to the Agency three times a month based on ten-day indicators in the form of special codes.
The training for using of this tool was carried out within the framework of the training course for specialists from hydrometeorological stations in MBAR, which took place from 5 to 7 August this year at the Agency. Agency plans to conduct training of specialists at the remaining agrometeorological networks in the second and third decades of August. This tool is particular importance for the necessary agricultural observations and allows specialists to obtain high-quality information about soil moisture and temperature in the shortest possible time.
