MPKit-406

MPKit Soil Moisture Instant Reading Kit

For portable and convenient measurement of volumetric soil moisture content in sports fields, irrigation monitoring, mine sites, and landfills.

The MPKit is a reliable and convenient portable soil moisture sensor. The MPKit does not need calibration and is not affected by temperature. The sensor needles are stainless steel and are embedded in a reinforced body.
The MPKit has been reliably used in the softest soils to the hardest, most stony soils. The MPKit is used with the KD2Pro or the MTN02 when measuring soil thermal properties.
