LT IRROMETER (Tensiometer)

LT IRROMETER (Tensiometer)

MODEL LT -  LOW TENSION IRROMETER -  designed to operate in coarse sandy soils and non-soil growing media. With a range of 0-40 centibars (cb) or kilopascals (kPa), this instrument is for use in situations where tensions above 30 cb (kPa) are rarely expected

 

An IRROMETER is a direct measurement system of SOIL TENSION, which means that it actually reads the physical forces at work in the soil. Irrometers act like a dummy root, allowing the soil moisture to interact with the instrument through the ceramic tip.

 

IRROMETERS come in various lengths which enables the farmer to measure in different depths of the soil
