To monitor the health of plant growth
To measure soil moisture, Electro conductivity and Temperature in soil. Salinity of the root zone is critical element for healthy plant growth; based on the above parameter we can know the irrigation, fertilizers level in soil. High levels can damage the plant and low level can lead to nutrient deficiencies. 

Save water & power using the soil moisture sensor. Irrigate when & only required. 

WaterScout SMEC 300 Soil Moisture, Temperature, EC Sensor:

Track soil moisture, salts, and soil temperature: all with a single sensor!

Whether it’s container pots in a greenhouse or turf on a putting green, the salinity of the root zone is a critical element for healthy plant growth.  Irrigation, fertilizers, and crop demand all impact salt concentrations.  High levels can damage the plant: low levels can lead to nutrient deficiencies.

Identify situations where soil salinity is an issue or where certain moisture and temperature conditions facilitate soil-borne diseases

  • Capacitance-type soil moisture sensor
  • Carbon ink electrodes provide large measuring surface for electrical conductivity (EC)
  • Easy, 1-step EC calibration process
  • Can be read with the FieldScout® Soil Sensor Reader (Item 6466) or WatchDog® 2000 and 1000 Series Stations
  • Connect up to 4 sensors per station
  • WaterScout Calibration Device (Item 6470CAL3V) required unless using Soil Sensor Reader (Item 6466)
