*EC upgradable - ALL probe models utilise salinity compensation techniques for greater accuracy, but only pro models can output salinity metrics. Standard models can be upgraded to enable salinity metrics pre or post purchase and pre or post installation with an upgrade key.
EnviroPro are fully encapsulated soil sensors for meaningful crop selection, irrigation and fertilisation decision making. The multi-function and multi-level subsurface instruments offer continuous reliable and repeatable monitoring of soil moisture, temperature and salinity (EC)*. With salinity and temperature compensated moisture readings, EnviroPro soil probes provide accurate data for better decision-making in agriculture.
All EnviroPro® soil probes are supplied with a 5-year warranty.
EnviroPro® soil sensors allow growers to collect data over long periods, enabling them to make informed decisions based on trends and historical events. Each sensor is factory calibrated to ensure lifetime sensor to sensor and probe to probe repeatability.
Save on our most precious resource, water. With the ability to test soil moisture levels at root level, EnviroPro® capacitance probes will give you the power to know when to irrigate, and how much water your crops require.
Manually sampling soil for testing or lab analysis takes time and money. EnviroPro® enables quick and easy access, any time, to information about the soil while reducing the need to travel into paddocks to conduct soil testing.
EnviroPro® is groundbreaking technology that can facilitate better quality produce and higher yields by providing an insight into underground conditions at the root zone, and thus enabling the optimisation of fertilisers, energy, irrigation and water use.
- Suitable in all crop types: 40, 80, 120 and 160 cm options available, sensors at 10 cm intervals
- SDI-12 V1.3 compliant - interfaces to all SDI-12 compliant loggers
- CE, RCM, FCC EMC, ROHS, reach compliant
- Optional SDI-12 TO RS-485 converter
- Standard 5 m cable (custom lengths on request)

Sample more soil
EnviroPro® sensors are uniquely designed to have a much larger field of influence than other capacitance probes, providing more meaningful measurements of the local soil.
All EnviroPro® sensor models compensate salinity and moisture measurements for variations in temperature, as well as compensating moisture measurements for salinity variations. Without this compensation, the presence of salinity in the soil can cause critical over reporting of moisture content by capacitance probes.
Designed to last
EnviroPro® soil probes are long-life instruments that are fully encapsulated to ensure maximum immunity to environmental degradation.
Each probe is individually calibrated in the factory, so they never need to be re-calibrated in the field.
Easy installation and removal
EnviroPro® installation kits used with recommended bentonite slurry make both install and removal of probes quick and easy.
In today’s economic and environmental climates, optimisation is key. First with salinity and temperature compensated moisture readings, EnviroPro® soil probes provide accurate data for better crop selection and meaningful irrigation and fertiliser decision-making, year after year.
Applications include turf, trees, flowers, vegetables, citrus, vines, cane fields, grains and dry-land crops, and many other plantations. Other applications include mining, environmental monitoring and scientific research.
