EM38-MK2 Soil Conductivity Meter
Tech Specs: Geonics new soil EM38-MK2 provides measurement of both conductivity and magnetic susceptibility components within two distinct depth ranges (30 and 60 inches), all simultaneously, without any requirement for soil-to-instrument contact. Includes Bluetooth.
WOW Factor: Conductivity helps generate high precision zone maps for variable-rate fertilizer, lime application, seeding and irrigation and the soil conductivity meter directs the placement of moisture monitors and is more accurate than satellite or NRCS maps, all without ground contact of sensors.

Tech Specs: Krohne Electromagnetic Flow Meters are used in liquid manure application primarily for measurement, but can also add safety to a dragline system. The meter counts every gallon that passes through it, therefore making it an excellent billing tool for commercial manure applicators as they perform contract work. This works well on both tank wagons or hose systems. Meter accuracy can be verified, providing an accurate, agreed upon measurement of the work that was done. Advanced users tie the meter into their GPS to provide precision maps detailing how the liquid manure was applied across the field. These application maps provide accurate records for farmers to use with their nutrient management plans to meet target rates and to provide documentation for compliance with local regulations. By utilizing 2 meters — one at the source and one at the end of a hose system — the system can be monitored for leaks by comparing what is leaving the storage and what is received in the field. If a hose were to break or burst, the operator would see flow rates drop immediately in the field. This adds another level of safety for these operators.
Compatibility Index: Exclusively Aftermarket Product
WOW Factor: Offers fully potted sensor and potted electronics. Potting eliminates condensation build up, prevents short circuits while dampening the internal components from the intense vibration that occurs during application. The special electrodes supplied provide greater immunity to the induced noise from the particles in the liquid manure flow stream, thereby improving performance. The bonded PFA liner eliminates dry rot and premature failures from seasonal use.
