Soil density penetrometer. The soil penetrometer is used to precisely determine your soil density and the stainless steel probe is scaled to mark the soil depth. The display also features an easy to read colour scale.
Plants living in dense soils can only absorb a limited amount of water and nutrients. Densely compacted soil also restricts the air exchange in the soil and reduces the N-mineralization.
Detecting compacted layers allows you to perform generalized pedological tests and basic surveys for determining the carrying capacity . You can also examine the expected growth conditions for plants and trees.
