Monitor overall soil compaction and quality, quick and effectively with this
The #1 source of yield loss in agriculture, soil compaction prevents moisture
penetration, reduces fertilizer and chemical utilization and hinders plant root
growth. In some cases, yield losses can run as high as 30% due to soil compaction.
Don't let it go unnoticed.
Soil Compaction meters are used to determine the density of soil and other
material. An operator pushes a rod with attached (ASAE standard) cone into the
ground. The resistance of the cone as it is pushed in the ground is measured
and recorded in the memory of the compaction meter. The depth of the cone below
soil surface is also measured and recorded in memory.
Compaction data is recorded and displayed at one inch intervals, in PSI or
kPa. Built-in datalogger eliminates the need to record data manually. Included
software allows user to download data, change logger settings and configure
Measure, log, and review data with the SC-900 Soil Compaction Meter to make
better soil management decisions based on data specific to your field. Identify
and address specific problem areas on-site and in real time.
