Agricultural measuring devices
Product quality control is part of daily work of farmers, agricultural contractors and dealers. Having samples analysed in laboratories is usually too expensive and too slow and therefore fast determination devices are used in practice.
A crucial parameter of agricultural products is moisture. Water content is an essential factor 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 device which enables the moisture content of compressed hay and straw to be determined quickly.
This is measured by inserting the lance into the bale. The result is displayed in real time.
Baler mounted moisture meter
The Agreto PFM II baler mounted moisture tester is a device which enables quick determination of the moisture content during the baling process.The baler-mounted sensor measures the moisture content of the material in real time during the baling process and this allows the driver to react immediately.
The temperature of many agricultural products must be checked in order to maintain their quality and to prevent overheating, leading to a fire hazard. This is normally 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 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 take the appropriate measures.
Soil compaction tester
The Agreto soil penetrometer is a device for determining the compaction of soil on agricultural land.The ground is pierced to measure its penetration resistance and detect any compacted layers in the soil. This enables any loosening measures to be taken if necessary.
