Penetrologger

The penetration resistance reflects the capacity of the soil and is a measure of how easily roots can penetrate it. This is particularly important in agriculture and in rural and urban civil engineering techniques. The penetration resistance is a mechanical variable, which depends between mineral particles in a particular soil on variable
parameters, such as degree of humidity, density and strength of the compound. The penetration resistance is measured in many measurements with an electronic penetrometer with a data logger, the data is stored and analyzed in the data logger.
