Measuring devices for agriculture
The quality control of the products produced is part of the daily work of farmers, agricultural contractors and dealers. The analysis of samples in laboratories is usually too expensive and too slow. Therefore fast determination devices are used in practice.
A crucial parameter of agricultural products is moisture. The water content is responsible for the quality and storability of many goods. The Agreto product range includes moisture meters for important agricultural products.
Hay and straw moisture meter
The Agreto HFM II hay and straw moisture meter is a fast determination device for measuring the moisture of compressed hay and straw.
The measurement is made by piercing the lance into the bale, the display of the result is in real time.
Baler mounted moisture meter
The Agreto PFM II baler mounted moisture tester is a fast determination device for measuring the moisture during the baling process.
The baler-mounted sensor measures the moisture content of the material in real time during the baling process, this allows the driver to react immediately.
Many agricultural products that are stored must be controlled for warming to maintain the quality and prevent the fire hazard. Normally this is done with simple temperature probes.
The Agreto temperature probe is a device for measuring the temperature in agricultural goods.
The lance is inserted into the material. The sensor installed at the tip measures the temperature, which is shown on the display on the handle.
Unwanted soil compaction poses a problem in agriculture. It inhibits root growth and disturbs the exchange of water, air and nutrients between the soil layers. This ultimately leads to permanent yield losses. A soil penetrometer makes it possible to detect compacted layers and to take the appropriate measures.
Soil compaction tester
The Agreto soil penetrometer is a device for determining the compaction of soil on agricultural land.
During piercing into the ground, the penetration resistance is measured. This way, compacted layers can be detected in the soil and loosening measures can be taken.
