oa Agrochemophysica - A new method of calibrating a neutron moisture meter and a correction for the effect of soil bulk density

Volume 5, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0302-7112



A combined neutron moisture and gamma density meter was employed to develop a simplified technique by which both the moisture and density calibration curves as well as a density correction factor can be obtained simultaneously. By means of an iteration process routine moisture and density meter readings are transformed respectively to percentage moisture by volume, corrected for the effect of bulk density and the dry bulk density of the soil.
