Page 3 of 7

The FullSTop wetting front detector, buried in a garden, is used by a gardener to measure water hitting the plant root zone.

The FullStop wetting front dectector helps irrigators use water efficiently.

The FullStop wetting front detector grew from an AusAID project to help irrigators more effectively and efficiently use water.

The detector is a simple mechanical device that shows how deep water has infiltrated into the soil, which assists in determining how much water plants need.

The technology is protected by granted patents derived from Hutchinson PA and Stirzaker R (1998) PCT publication number WO1998/38491. The words 'Full Stop' are a registered trade mark.
