Geospatial measurements of apparent soil electrical conductivity (ECa) have become one of the most frequently used measurements for monitoring, mapping, and assessing field variability for agricultural applications, particularly of salinity and water content. The paper describes the technology and methodology for measuring, monitoring, mapping, and assessing soil salinity (and associated soil properties) using geospatial ECa measurements to characterizing spatio-temporal changes in soil quality at a drainage water reuse site. ECa directed soil sampling is an effective tool to broadly evaluate the impact of management on soil resources.
