Using and setting up the Delmhorst KS-D1 moisture meter is very easy to do. By having this moisture detecting system you will be able to monitor soil moisture continuously and provide perfect growing conditions for your plants. There will be no more cases of over or under irrigation which can have severe effects on your plant crop and soil conditions will remain in tip top condition.


To set up the system you first need to bury the gypsum blocks in the soil. They can be buried to suit any root system and structure. To make the holes to bury the gypsum blocks you can use a post hole digger or a soil auger. You want to situate the gypsum blocks in the root zone of your specific plants. The plants will determine the depth for you. For deep rooted plants you want to set blocks at the lowest point of the roots, midway and also near the surface and then leave the blocks undisturbed in situation.

When it comes to taking a reading you need to connect the block leads to the moisture meter and press the read button.


Take care in selecting the correct situation for the gypsum blocks. You do not want to place the blocks in either low or high spots and need to have them where the plants are representative of the whole area. When you take readings try to ensure that the soil where you work from does not become too compacted. Never walk in the furrows where you are testing with the moisture meter. You may have a sprinkler system set up. If so be sure not to situate the gypsum blocks where that can be damaged by the sprinkler system or when you move the sprinkler system. False readings may occur as well if the blocks are situated too near to a sprinkler head.


The blocks should also not be shielded by low hanging branches or in an area where flooding can occur. If it is row crops you wish to monitor then it is advisable that you situate the blocks directly below the row. For orchards the blocks should be placed at the drip line of the tree.
