- Model SMEC 300 - Soil Moisture, Temperature, EC Sensor

From

0

Track soil moisture, salts, and soil temperature: all with a single sensor! Whether it’s container pots in a greenhouse or turf on a putting green, the salinity of the root zone is a critical element for healthy plant growth.  Irrigation, fertilizers, and crop demand all impact salt concentrations.  High levels can damage the plant: low levels can lead to nutrient deficiencies.

Identify situations where soil salinity is an issue or where certain moisture and temperature conditions facilitate soil-borne diseases
