Spectrum Technologies brings soil measurement technology to potato growers with its FieldScout TDR350. The TDR350 is a highly relevant tool every grower can find useful and affordable in working toward optimal soil management.  

“The TDR350 provides farmers with an objective and consistent way to measure soil moisture, and to determine the best strategy for irrigation tillage, fertilizer application and planting operations,” says Mike Thurow, president and CEO of Spectrum Technologies.

The TDR350 allows growers to easily and rapidly take measurements in various soil environments with increased accuracy to capture soil volumetric water content, electrical conductivity and surface temperature. The large-capacity data logger can record approximately 50,000 measurements with GPS coordinates.

With integrated Bluetooth and internal GPS, no additional components are necessary for wireless connectivity. Data records can be saved to a USB drive or sent via Bluetooth connection to a smartphone or tablet using the FieldScout Pro Mobile app. Field readings are available in real time by using the TDR350 in conjunction with the FieldScout Pro Mobile app and SpecConnect.

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers has named the FieldScout TDR350 winner of a 2018 AE50 award.
