super affordable analog penetrometer your first line of defense
against soil compaction.
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.
This compaction meter enables you

can use deep tillage or other practices recommended for your area
based on hard facts.
