Soil Suction Access Tubes

SSAT (Soil Solution Access Tubes), or Suction Lysimeters, were developed to easily extract soil water samples for testing. They provide the user with an accurate method of determining salinity or plant nutrient levels.

 

Because the sample is collected at root zone depth, it reflects the true impact fertilization has on the plant material. Understanding soil water conditions helps the user make informed fertigation scheduling decisions resulting in improved yield and reduced fertilizer, water, labor and energy costs
