Deeper Understanding of Forestry Soils
As part of our research program on forest harvesting on soft soils we installed two Soil Scout systems in different forest types. Soil strength measurements were carried out side by side with the monitoring. The continuous soil moisture data improved our understanding on the phenomena and we were surprised to see how soil acted in between the manual measurements. The successful and educative research brought us significant continued projects with our commercial business partners.
