Take note of the depth at which the compaction layer begins and ends for comprehensive analysis.

Soil Compaction Tester / Penetrometer

In a healthy soil there are large and small pore spaces which contain the air, water and room for plant roots and soil organisms to breath, grow and reproduce successfully. These spaces are dynamic, enabling the air and water to flow through them. This results in the ideal situation producing, a well-drained, biologically active soil and good playing surfaces.

In a compacted soil the pore spaces are reduced or absent and in turn the relative amount of available air, water and space for the plant roots and soil organisms to live is restricted. This leads to reduced plant and soil health and poorly draining saturated soils, which provide an inadequate playing surface.

As a further consequence compacted soil can negatively effect the utilisation of applied fertilisers and chemicals resulting in less efficient uptake.

Instrument allows the user to obtain an insight of the severity and depth of compacted zones within the soil profile. This information can then be utilised to make informed decisions on remedial strategies.
