Instruments for Measuring EC
Soils and Substrates
Use the GS3 to monitor the bulk EC of soilless substrates. Growing tools in DataTrac 3 allow you to convert bulk EC to pore water EC.
Use the 5TE to measure EC in mineral soils. Growing tools in DataTrac 3 allow you to convert bulk EC to pore water EC.
The CTD sensor can be used in piezometers to monitor EC and depth of shallow groundwater.
