portable volumetric water content meter
The TDR-100 Soil Moisture Meter is an easy to use, portable, handheld meter that is ideal for measuring soil water content, or relative water content, in small volumes such as pots.
The TDR 100 Soil Moisture Meter measurement principle is based on Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) and is considered one of the most accurate approaches to measuring soil moisture. The TDR 100 will be highly accurate across all soil types where EC is less than 2mS/cm.
The TDR 100 operates off 4 x AAA batteries that have a life of approximately 12 months.
Select from the 3.8cm, 7.5cm, 12cm or 20cm probe rods (sold separately) to suit your measurement depth. The LCD interface provides two modes: volumetric water content and relative water content (irrigation management) mode. For data logging and GPS capabilities, see the TDR-350 Soil Moisture Meter.
