This MS thesis research has focused on the profiling feasibility of flat thin mm-sized soil moisture sensor (termed as MSMS) through field tests at UConn farm and Ethiopia farms. By etching on gold compact disc (CD), MSMS has the distinct merits of small size (mm-carbon interdigitated with 0.5 mm thickness), high accuracy of soil moisture measurement (10 kΩ-10 MΩ for 10%-50% soil moisture), good correlation of resistance readings with soil moisture, long stability (stable at least for half a year in lab tests) and easy fabrication (sensor), and low cost (
