Device can be easily placed in the field
Suitable for all types of soil
Possibility of testing at different depths
Option for standalone operation or connection to irrigation controllers

Features

  • The IRROMETER operates according to tensiometer principle, measuring the soil water voltage. Soil water tension is the energy (vacuum) applied to the soil by the plant as it draws water for nutrition. This force is measured in centibar (cb) or kilopascals (kPa) of a high-voltage reading, indicating the dry end of the scale, and a low reading indicating the wet end of the scale

  • Consists of an airtight, liquid-filled pipe equipped with a porous ceramic tip and a special vacuum gauge.
  • Sampling is taken during and after irrigation
  • The drier the soil, the higher the meter reading
  • Depending on the measured values, the controller will perform the operations manually or automatically

    Increasing the amount of water in the next cycle

– Increasing the amount of water in the next cycle

– Reducing or halting irrigation

  • Actually, the Irrometer indicates how hard the roots work to absorb the water
