Soil Probes

AMS soil probes are the most basic soil sampling tool for agronomists, geologists, agricultural consultants, farmers and other soil scientists.

Like all AMS sampling equipment, AMS soil probes are robust and easy to use. Most are used to collect small diameter samples at or near the ground surface. They allow you to provide a quick soil profile or description, and to determine soil moisture content. Samples may also be collected directly into a liner with some models to allow for later chemical analysis of the soil sample.

All AMS probes cut a core sample slightly smaller than the inner diameter of the probe body to allow for easy removal of the core from the cylinder. They are made of nickel-plated or unplated chrome molybdenum type 4130, or are all stainless steel. All probes also feature a heat-treated tip, and replaceable tip options are available.
