AgTech: Soil Testing Tools by Humboldt

Humboldt involved in manufacturing various soil testing tools. One of product from Humboldt is Percometer. It is used for measuring dielectric value (er), electrical conductivity (J) and temperature of soil. The dielectric value (DV) is a measure of the unbound water within a soil sample. Unbound water directly influences material strength and the ability of a soil to resist the effects of repeated freeze-thaw cycling. The Tube Suction Test reveals the state of water bonding within the soil particles and should not be considered as a simple measure of moisture content.

This Percometer also measures
 Moisture content of soil and moisture damage to plants
 Asphalt Air Voids in air
 Frost Susceptibility
 Salinity in soil
 Sulfate content in soil
