By looking through the eye piece you will notice that the refractometer has a high quality optical glass prism that helps make your reading as clear as possible. A rubber grip that is dimpled helps ensure a simple external cleanup.

The penetrometer is a gauged probe used to measure the level of compaction at various levels within the soil. As soil becomes more compacted, it loses its ability to absorb and retain moisture. The soil pressure in the aerobic zone (with oxygen) should not exceed 300 PSI (pounds per square inch). This is where the feeder roots of most plants exist and they are unable to penetrate higher levels of pressure. The anaerobic zone (without oxygen) is where the soil loses its ability to drain water and can no longer pull fresh oxygen in.
