About the Machine

The new pH Detector is an ATV-mounted pH mapping system capable of intensely mapping several hundred acres per day. The operator lowers a probe chamber into the soil with an easy-push mechanism. As the handle is lowered, a durable metalloid pH electrode is inserted into the chamber, contacting the soil at the bottom of the cavity. pH measurement is completed in 7-10 seconds. Geo-referenced data logging and pH electrode cleaning are all automatic.

Grid samplers can shrink their grid size for pH significantly, yet maintain top capacity. Zone samplers can collect a geo-referenced pH reading wherever they pull a core for the zone composite sample. Readings from pH Detector and lab-analyzed samples taken from same location are highly correlated.
