FARMERS wanting to track how their soil is changing are being urged to tap into a "walk-through webinar" for Agriculture Victoria's monitoring website.
The revamped website includes new tools that can translate soil moisture data into meaningful, real time information at sites across the state, seasonal risk agronomist Dale Boyd said.
"My favourite tool is the 'speedo' graph showing change in overall soil moisture at a particular site," he said.
"It's a simple way to represent how the soil moisture profile has changed over the last year, in other words how full the 'tank' is."
Other tools allow people to gauge soil temperatures and one- to three-month rainfall outlooks.
Soil moisture is tracked at multiple sites across the region's food growing north, including Elmore, Raywood, Dingee, Serpentine and Charlton.
All sites are showing improvements compared to a year ago thanks to regular downpours throughout 2020.

The webinar takes place on 17 June at noon.
