Medusa MS-RhoC5 soil density meter

MS-RhoC 5

The Medusa Radiometrics MS-Rho 5 measures soil bulk density in the field. Soil bulk density is an important physical soil health indicator and
generally used for assessing soil quality. The MS-RhoC5 measures the backscatter of gamma radiation emitted from a (low-activity) source, which can be used without legislation.

Application

The Medusa Radiometrics MS-RhoC5 measures soil bulk density in the field. The MS-RhoC5 measures the backscatter of gamma radiation emitted from a (low-activity) source, which can be used without legislation.

The sensor can measure up to 100 cm deep and only needs a hole of 30 mm diameter for such a measurement. With this sensor, there is no need for a soil pit or any laboratory work to determine soil bulk density, the sensor provides the measured densities during measurement in the field.
