Soil moisture is measured by inserting the probe into the soil at each location to be tested. The unit is sensitive only at the tip, therefore the reading obtained on the meter indicates the amount of moisture only at the probe tip. Now you can determine the moisture condition of your compost without having to remove any mulch or soil. Just insert the probe directly into the compost. Instantly, your Backyard Compost Moisture Meter will give you an accurate reading of moisture content.

The meter is sensitive to changing salt content and can be used to track leachate as well as give you moisture content. Used by composters, farmers, and nurseries across the country.
