Spectrum’s TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) meters accurately measure the volumetric water content in the soil profile. The FieldScout TDR 150 Soil Moisture Meter is portable and facilitates readings on the go with a press of a button. The FieldScout TDR 350 Meter accurately measures soil moisture across the full range of soil conditions with integrated Bluetooth and GPS.
Spectrum’s soil compaction meters and testers precisely detect conditions that prevent moisture penetration and hinders plant root growth. The FieldScout TruFirm turf firmness meter offers a quick, easy, and affordable method to measure the firmness of turf and bunker sands. Data acquired from the meters and testers provides golf course superintendents and sports turf managers the ability to take appropriate actions to reach the desired firmness of golf course greens, fairways, bunkers, and other playing surfaces.
