AMS Brown Moisture Probe
AMS Brown Moisture Probe determines moisture depth quickly and easily
Agricultural scientists and farmers use the brown moisture probe to determine the depth of wetting following irrigation.
The probe has a modified auger tip and depth markings a 1', 2', and 3' from the tip.
The probe is pushed into the soil vertically by hand. It will easily penetrate saturated soils, but not dry soils. The resistance rises as moisture content falls. At the end of the push the probe is withdrawn and a small soil sample will be trapped in the modified auger flights for visual confirmation of the soil's moisture condition.
The probe is made from carbon steel and is 43" long with a built-in 10" comfortably gripped cross handle.
