Soil Moisture and Temperature Profiling Probe

Tonicks profiling probes measure soil moisture across a vertical soil profile, typically spanning a range of 30cm to 120cm.

Measuring soil moisture at multiple depths is important for optimizing irrigation, as it helps characterize the penetration of water throughout the root zone.

The chief advantage of using a soil profiling probe is the elimination of the cost of multiple single-point sensors and the need to excavate a large hole in order to bury them at the appropriate depths.
