Just had a conversation at the counter with another Irrigator about this. Talked to our local rep. They said they thought it would come out in March. Don't know if they've done beta yet. http://www.toro.com/en-us/Professional-Contractor/Irrigation/Sensors/Pages/Model.aspx?pid=Precision-Soil-Sensor One concern I would have is the fact that it sits exposed, on the turf. Not real sure how that would work. Your thoughts?
