The FOGII Plus Digital Soil Calcimeter™ with UMP-1 provides the measurement of soil carbonate content in the field. It has a rugged design and is easy to use so that it is suitable for field campaigns.
Complies with the EN ISO 10693 method based on the pressure measurement of carbon dioxide released upon addition of hydrochloric acid in carbonates. As such it replaces the lab Scheibler apparatus, and gives access to the on-site determination of the carbonate content. The Plus version comes with an integrated UMP-1 soil moisture sensor, which allows in-field measurement of the water content and the dry soil correction of the readings. This eliminates the obligatory drying step.
The FOGII Digital Soil Calcimeter™ with automatic temperature compensation (patented) offers dramatically improved levels of performance, productivity, reliability, ease of use and flexibility.
The FOGII Digital Soil Calcimeter™ is the ideal tool for agriculture scientists and farmers. Testing soil every two years and applying frequent small amounts of lime can help farmers avoid top soil acidification. Calcium carbonate is an important parameter for Soil Science and Precision Agriculture (PA) or Site Specific Crop Management (SSCM).
