Spectrum Technologies, Inc., extended its product offering with the release of the FieldScout TDR 250 economy soil moisture meter. The new model enhances the well adopted TDR product line. It is ideal for turf managers who are looking to capture spot measurements for consistent turf health and quality.
The TDR 250 measures soil moisture (volumetric water content) in less than a second, with settings for standard, hi-clay, or sand texture soils. With a rugged, T-handle frame and exclusive LCD display, the user-friendly TDR can capture accurate measurements across the green or sports field. Data logs (up to 124,000 measurements) can then be downloaded and transferred via a USB flash drive. All of Spectrum’s TDR meters offer interchangeable soil probes at varying lengths, so customers can choose the best option for their turf root zone.
“Spectrum Technologies is responding to what the turf market has been asking for,” said Mike Thurow, president and CEO. “With the TDR 250, turf managers will receive Spectrum’s precision measurement technology while investing 20 percent less.”
Through use of the TDR 250, turfgrass managers can conserve water and reduce labor costs. Data can objectively be collected, resulting in more effective decision-making around irrigation and pesticide scheduling.
