LUBRICATED CONE PENETROMETER FOR QUANTIFYING THE SOIL PHYSICAL CONDITION

The cone penetrometer has for many years been used to characterize soils in terms of cone index in tillage, trafficability and soil-plant interaction studies. The instrument is highly portable and makes possible many measurements in relatively short period of time. It has, therefore, been used widely to characterize soils where variation is often considerable.
