Enabling better global research outcomes in soil, plant & environmental monitoring.

HandiTrase TDR Soilmoisture Meter

If you need to know your soil moisture, get an accurate number, not a guess. TRASE TDR moisture meters from Soilmoisture Equipment Corporation use true Time Domain Reflectometer technology to measure volumetric water content (moisture percent) in soil. With the 2018 release of the all new HandiTRASE model, we have radically reduced the size of the TRASE TDR system, dramatically improved its user interface & added powerful new features.

  • Easy to operate, user friendly software
  • Measure moisture from 0 to 100% with ±2% accuracy
  • Accurately measures in high salinity and high EC soils where most meters fail
  • GPS data & mapping: Smart Farm capable
  • True TDR analysis with graphs
  • Measurement time as little as 4 seconds
  • Robust & versatile probes suitable for any type of soil
  • Several days of battery life for hundreds of readings
