Soil Compaction Meter

Make our super affordable analog penetrometer your first line of defense against soil compaction.

Soil Compaction meters (often called penetrometers) are used to determine the density of soil and other material. An operator pushes a rod with attached (ASAE standard) cone into the ground. The resistance of the cone is displayed as it is pushed in the ground.

Unseen soil compaction can limit root growth and water and nutrient absorption. This compaction meter enables you to identify compacted areas in pounds per square inch so that you can use deep tillage or other practices recommended for your area based on hard facts.
