Agrosta Copains® Soil Penetrometer

Agrosta Copains® is an instrument designed for agriculture monitoring.

We have co-designed it with Copains Srl in Argentina

Simple, efficient and accurate, it’s an excellent tool to determine soil

compaction

Agrosta Copains Soil Penetrometer

Agrosta Copains® Soil Penetrometer comes with :

- a GPS - a Ultrasonic radar to determine penetration distance - a MicroSD card on which data is recorded under Excel compatible format (.Csv) - a High capacity rechargeable battery - a 100 Kg capacity load cell - 90 cm penetration capacity (Stainless steel shaft 12mm diameter) - a 4 Lines retro-lighted screen We have designed it in 2019, our engineers have tried to make the most simple and robust soil compaction tester (Soil consistency meter) as possible : - It has no button except the ON/OFF switch - It provides continuously the GPS position when the satellite is found - It detects automatically when the user takes a measurement (Once the pressure on the shaft reaches 2 Kg), it displays instantly the penetration distance and the pressure in grams every second - Once the pressure goes back under 2 Kg, all measurements are automatically stored on the microSD, as well as the GPS position, the date and time (GMT) Soil consistency meter Technical characteristics : - Pressures from 2000 grams to 100 000 grams - Penetration from 0 to 90 cm - Battery capacity : 1 full day for 1 hour charging - GPS precision : 5 meters approx - Load cell precision : +/- 2 grams - Radar precision : +/- 1cm - Data provided in grams and cm (12mm diameter pointed shaft) Our soil consistency meter comes with : - The instrument itself - A 94 cm stainless steel shaft - A 110/220 V charger according to your location (US, EU, GB, Asia) Why test soil consistency ? - Increase yield by increasing root and plant development - Reduce time and fuel cost by reducing power required to till a field - Increase soil water content - Increase the efficiency of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides Our soil penetrometer comes with a microSD and creates a unique file named data.csv . Your measurements are stored one after each other in this unique file using the following structure : First the GPS data : longitude, latitude and GMT date and time given by the GPS, then 2 columns with the deepness in cm and the corresponding pressure (Taken each second during penetration). This file can be opened by Excel (using “;” separator when Excel asks) and a soil profile curve can be displayed. Simply browse the field with your soil penetrometer in hand and pin the shaft into the ground every time you think it can be interesting When you remove the shaft from the soil, the maximum pressure is displayed. When you are back to the office, open the file and display a curve for all the test points.. Then find on a map the corresponding GPS locations (using google for example) - This penetrometer measures the resistance of the soil in grams giving an indication on how compacted the soil is / compressive strength of soil. the lower the compaction, the more oxygen is available for micro life and the more easily the roots and water penetrate
