Salina Kansas-based Veris Technologies is releasing two innovative soil sensing devices called the Quad EC1000 and the pH Detector.
These unique condensed soil status monitoring devices are configured for use in ATV’s (all-terrain vehicles).
The pH Detector is capable of measuring the pH differences at various points in the management areas or within a small network. The pH sensor can be easily embedded in the soil by a simple pushing process. The geo-referenced pH readings will be displayed in the company’s DataLogger soon after integrating the sensor in the soil, within about ten seconds. The device is highly cost-effective due to the robust metalloid sensor in it.
The soil EC monitoring system called the Quad EC1000 is equipped with four tine-fixed disks in which two of them are used for the administration of electrical current and the other two for the calculation of voltage reduction above 30 cm in the soil. The soil’s electrical conductivity is directly linked with the type of soil. This innovative technique is suitable for the improvement of management areas as well as for the formulations of different seeds.
Both the devices are user-friendly and can be transported easily.
