The arable land auger and mineral auger

The auger for arable land, with an operational length of 25 cm, is used to take samples from the furrow. The mineral auger, also included in the set, is used to take samples from the top layer up to a depth of  60 cm. Because of their operational length and small diameter these gouge augers are pre-eminently suitable for sampling of the top layers of arable land, in particular for a nitrate- or a fertilization research, etc.
