Soil probe

Detecting compacted soil layer and areas left by ploughs

The stainless steel soil probe is a tool used for detecting (or probing) soil layer densities, water permeability levels, and soil types. It does not require the soil to be dug up. It can be used to detect zones within the topsoil layer which may disturb root growth (too loose or too dense soil) or to find compression zone caused by ploughs or tractors. It is also useful for detecting differences in soil types in the soil zone (for example, loess on clay or peat on sand). The soil probe can also be used for tree care applications.

The soil probe is delivered with two cone-shaped tips. The cones have different surface areas; this allows you to measure in both compacted and loose soils.
