Soil Testing Penetrometers
A soil penetrometer tests for soil compaction in fields. This kit features a rod to push into the ground, which detects root growth and the resistance level of the soil. The gauge has a scale that measures the soil PSI starting with 0-200 PSI, 200-300 PSI, and 300+ PSI which determines whether the area has root restriction, dry soil or tough soil. A penetrometer can also measure clay content in the ground. Lightweight and portable, a pocket penetrometer is ideal for being carried along large plots of land.
