3 Must-Have Moisture Meters for Agriculture

May 13th 2021

Moisture content readings are consistently needed across the agriculture industry. Industry professionals need to know how much water in the soil is available to their crops, what the moisture content (%MC) of plants are at the time of harvest, and whether their crops are at an appropriate moisture content for long-term storage. For the most consistent, accurate moisture measurements, we offer Delmhorst Moisture Meters. With the right agriculture moisture meter, farmers can get a fast and accurate moisture content measurement of their crops (or of available moisture in soil).

Here’s the top three moisture meters for agriculture:

1: The KS-D1 Soil Moisture Meter 

KS-D1The KS-D1 Soil Moisture Meter allows agricultural specialists to accurately gauge the amount of available moisture there is in their soil.

sing gypsum sensor blocks that are buried in the soil (near the crop’s root zone), this meter measures the amount of moisture in the soil that is available to crops. Crop health can be improved by knowing how much available moisture there is in soil is so that irrigation is optimized. Prevent water waste and soil erosion while improving crop health with this device!

2: The F-2000 Hay Moisture Meter 

Hay Moisture Meter

Test hay in the windrow, during baling, or even in the bale with the F-2000 Hay Moisture Meter.

Moisture content measurement is critical for farmers ensure optimum moisture content for nutritional value and safety at every step of the hay harvesting process. The F-2000 averages up to 100 accumulated readings and provides the average and the highest moisture content readings of the last eight measurements taken. This provides farmers with real-time information about the moisture content of their hay as it’s being baled without making them stop to get out and re-test the windrow.

3: The C-2000 Cotton Moisture Meter 


The C-2000 cotton moisture meter is a specialty agriculture moisture meter with four separate reading scales for testing lint cotton, seed cotton, wool, and viscose/rayon—making it perfect for textile industry work.

Cotton is a key crop for the textile industry, and clothing companies need to have high-quality base ingredients to make top-quality clothing. The C-2000 is designed to be used with any Delmhorst electrode, but the 37-E/C electrode is the one best suited for testing cotton moisture. Effectively measure moisture content in high-quality cotton with this meter!

Agriculture moisture meters are a must-have for professionals testing soil, hay, or cotton moisture content. Improve the quality your harvest today!
