ThetaKit Moisture Meter
The ThetaKit provides precision soil moisture data. It is easy to use, dependable, affordable - and ideal for use on golf courses and sports stadia.
- Spot check soil moisture content quickly and easily - identify potential dry spots early
- Check the performance of automatic sprinklers
- After saturation, determine the holding capacity of pitches, fairways, greens and tees, to optimise moisture level for best play and appearance
Achieving the highest standards of turf management requires the very best equipment available.
Designed originally for scientific applications, the ThetaKit gives greenkeepers and groundsmen access to research quality equipment - but with the complexity removed. You simply push the probe into the soil, press a button and read off the % moisture content from the LCD.

ML3 ThetaProbe Soil Moisture and Temperature Sensor
The next generation of ThetaProbe
The new ThetaProbe has extra features, improved performance and a new look. Within 1% accuracy, the ThetaProbe continues to set the standard for soil moisture measurement but now also measures soil temperature.
- Soil moisture with ± 1% accuracy: - gold standard performance
- New built-in temperature measurement: - ± 0.5°C accuracy
- New adaptable cable system: - extendable, easy handling
- New white body: - reduces radiative heating
- Improved performance in saline soils: - usable in soils up to 2000 mS.m-1
Moisture Meter type HH2
Simple, versatile operation
- The ThetaKit includes the HH2 Moisture Meter which offers impressive functionality in a compact, handheld unit, designed for field use. Readings are displayed on the LCD and can be stored to memory for later download to a PC. Up to 2100 time-stamped readings can be stored. The unit can be operated with one hand, for convenience in the field.
unless your PC has an RS232 port (most do not) and if you want to down load readings to it's hard drive then your ThetaKit will need a USB to RS232 adapter cable. These can be obtained at low cost from many IT suppliers, but for stable performance we recommend the high-spec USB-RS232 model (sold below).
