Product Description

Soil Penetrometer (Soil Compaction)

Measures soil compaction in PSI & KPa to max of 1500 PSI (downward pressure). Generally plant roots will struggle to penetrate soil that has a reading of 300 PSI or above.

Monitor overall soil compaction and quality quickly and effectively with this quality Australian-made Penetrometer. Increased soil compaction results in a highter soil bulk density, which can reduce water infiltration, reduce soil strength, increase run-off and erosion potential, and reduce site productivity.

This quality Hydraulic Penetrometer has a stainless steel probe and is ideal for soil measuring soil compaction. Do you know how hard or tight the hard pan is in your soil, at depths from 0 to 18 inches (45 cm)? The only sure way to measure soil compaction is with a Penetrometer.

Penetrometers (or Soil Compaction meters) are used to determine the density of soil. An operator pushes a rod with attached cone into the ground. The resistance of the cone as it is pushed in the ground is measured by the Penetrometer.
