The REOTEMP MM24 Long Stem Moisture Meter allows you to measure relative moisture of tree roots, soil and compost piles. The meter indicates the moisture content of your compost pile or soil sample by means of a sensor at the bottom of the 24″ probe. The probe is sensitive only at the tip. Calibrate the instrument by inserting the tip into an ideal sample of compost or soil and adjusting the needle to a “5” on the 0 to 10 scale. Then, the next time you insert your Moisture meter you’ll know relative to your ideal moisture content whether your soil is too dry or too wet. Note that this is not a % moisture content. The meter is sensitive to changing salt content and can be used to track leachate. Used by composters, farmers, municipal composting operations, and nurseries across the country. This product is covered under a 1 year limited warranty.
