Several methods for obtaining soil samples for determining soil water content were used
for field calibration of neutron gauges. This paper compares the results of calibration
curves obtained from the study data by comparing intercepts, slopes and correlation
coefficients ("r" values). The study found differences in characteristics between gauges
of the same brand, differences between brands and a great effect by access tube
materials on the calibration curve.
