The Homeowners Moisture Meter MM15 is a heavy-duty meter that can be used by gardeners, composters, farmers, and nurseries to attain an accurate moisture level reading in the soil.
The meter's unique calibration feature allows it to be used in a range of applications, including compost, gardening, and soil moisture testing. The calibration allows you to adjust the meter to the specific moisture needs of different plants and applications compared to a meter that isn't adjustable.
This Backyard Moisture Meter has a 15" long stem designed for monitoring the relative moisture in your backyard sized compost pile or soil. Calibrate the meter to your standard pile to get a relative 0-10 reading. A reading above 5 indicates the compost or soil is too wet, while a reading below 5 indicates the compost or soil is too dry.
The Backyard Moisture Meter is also great for use in outdoor containers, hanging baskets, and houseplants. It is great for checking for inadequate and unequal watering of containers and ground grown crops.
