A good knowledge of the distribution of soil moisture is essential for the planning and control of irrigation in agricultural areas. The GPR presents significant advantages with respect to the traditional methods for the measurement of this parameter. GPR scanning of crop-field size terrains allow to generate high-temporal resolution soil moisture maps. The information derived from the maps serves for the optimization of the water resources, hence a reduction of the money spent for irrigation and the associated expenses. Under certain conditions, a complementary product can be the detection of the depth of the water level, its spatial variations and temporal oscillations, based on which it can be possible to interpret the local water flow patterns.
