EC Probe for Soil Salinity Measurements (14.01)

Highly irrigated environments are increasingly becoming salinated.

The Eijkelkamp EC Probe for Soil Salinity Measurements (14.01) is the perfect instrument for monitoring the progress (or decline) or soil salinity.  By tracking salinity changes over time, users can obtain a greater understanding of salinity impacts on localised environmental health.

Traditionally, understanding soil salinity required sending soil samples to a laboratory for analysis. However, this method is costly and labour intensive.

The Eijkelkamp EC Probe for Soil Salinity Measurements (14.01) enables users to determine the salinity of soil electrically.

The EC probe, in combination with an earth resistivity meter, measures the resistivity of soil.  The reading is subsequently converted into electrical conductivity, with readings dependent on the structure & texture of the soil, the moisture content and the salinity of the ground water.

The Eijkelkamp EC Probe for Soil Salinity Measurements (14.01) includes:

• 1 x EC Probe
• 1 x Resistivity Meter
• 1 x Gouge Auger
• 1 x Spatula
• 1 x Carry Bag

FEATURES
  • Operates quickly and easy.
  • Saves labour and laboratory research
  • Is relatively inexpensive compared with laboratory research.
  • Earth resistivity meter comes in splashproof, shock resistant synthetic housing.
