Ground Humidity and Ground temperature Eilat Israel

Ground Humility

Eilat Israel

In order to improve the incubation process and to solve the
Humidity question we did for now 4 tests in 3 different wadis.

On each one we took 8 sample: at the depth of 60, 80, 100 and 120 centimeter. From each depth 2 sample. It done early morning
At the moment we get to the right depth the sample get into hermetic plastic bag and then again inside another one.

Here are the results of the first one from 31.07.00
