Product Description

                          DELMHORST” USA Soil Moisture Meter

Model : KS-D1

 The KS-D1 Digital Soil Moisture Meter, used with the GB-1 Gypsum Soil Blocks,

make up a valuable system to monitor the soil moisture available to the plants. This

system eliminates guesswork so that irrigation can be effectively scheduled

according to plants' requirements. The KS-D1, housed in a rugged ABS plastic case,

features reliable temperature stable semi-conductor technology with internal battery

and calibration checks for users' full confidence. A membrane switch panel provides

positive, tactile feel. Spring-loaded binding posts allow for positive contact with the

blocks' leads

· Carrying Case: included


The importance of water to plant growth is well known. Also, effective irrigation

should be properly controlled in quantity and timing. Continuous and appropriate use of soil moisture testing devices can effectively aid in obtaining maximum crop yield at optimum quality levels and conserve water.


· Under-irrigation – thus preventing wilting, and making fertilizer application more efficient.

· Over-irrigation – with remarkable savings in power, labor, and water.


Soil spoilage due to excessive water and poor drainage.


Bigger and better crops at lower cost.


GB-1 Gypsum Blocks

The blocks are made of gypsum, cast around two concentric, stainless steel

electrodes. They are manufactured under controlled conditions to obtain a maximum degree of uniformity and fast response to soil moisture changes.

The GB-1 measures 7/8” dia. x 1 1/8 “ in height. It is the most widely used sensing

unit, easy to install and especially suited for extensive sampling of soil at various


Simple Operation:

The blocks are buried in representative areas in the field to monitor soil moisture

changes in the area of active root growth. They are buried at one or more levels,

depending on the crop and the depth of the root zone. When the blocks’ lead wires

are connected to the meter, an indication of the available soil moisture is

immediately obtained on the meter display. The meter readings can be converted

into terms of available soil moisture or soil moisture tension by referring to

calibration curves, which are part of the operating instructions.
