iBebot Soil Quality Wireless Moisture & EC Meter

Measure Your Ec In Your Soil The Easy Way!

A wireless sensor that is powered by batteries and detects the electrical conductivity (EC) of the nutrients in your soil!

SoilQuality works with iOS and Android devices.

The IPX5 water-resistant design makes it appropriate for use in either indoor or outdoor gardening.

For the best results, make sure you have a clear line of sight for up to 30 metres because SoilQuality connects through Bluetooth 4.0 (not WiFi).

It is possible to use SoilQuality in one pot or several pots. If used in a new pot, don't forget to clean with disinfection alcohol.

Illustration of soil moisture

When the AVR of the soil reaches 70%, it is no longer suitable for sustaining plant life. In order to give AVR Soil Moisture measurement between 0 and 70%, SoilQuality has been developed with a full scale at 70%; over 70%, the reading will remain at 70%.

This makes your life 10x easier!!

In the event that the moisture reading in the water doesn't exceed 70%, the "Soil Sensing Probe" should be gently cleaned with disinfection alcohol.

Soil Nutrients and EC Measurement

The Electrical Conductivity (EC) of soil is measured by SoilQuality.

The Soil Electrical Conductivity (EC) of soil on moist soil, at a given temperature, is proportional to the amount of nutrients in the soil: an increase in the nutrient results in an increase in the Soil Electrical Conductivity and vice versa.

A plant needs water in order for minerals to dissolve in the water and become available to the plant as nutrients in order to absorb nutrients from the soil.

A plant won't be able to develop and absorb any nutrients in dry soil.

The moisture of the soil has an impact on soil EC as well; when the soil is dry, the EC significantly decreases, despite the presence of minerals.

Soil EC provides a good relative estimate of the nutrients that are available to the plant.

Another element that will impact the EC level of the soil is temperature. Most European Union agriculture standards are provided at 25 °C. The EC increases with increasing temperature.

As a general rule, for every 1°C rise in temperature, the EC of water rises by 2 to 3%.

The same moisture content and temperature should be used to compare nutrient levels across time or between soil samples.

It is crucial to remember that when mixing soil with a water solution, the final soil's EC will depend on the EC level of the water solution, the soil's mineral content, and the moisture content of the mixture of the three!
