Features of soil sampling equipments
Soil sampling equipment will be made of metals that won’t react with minerals in the soil in order to prevent contamination. They will have a column that is drilled or pushed into the ground in order to grab up a sample.
How soil sampling equipments work
There are several methods of digging up samples. The majority of them are man-powered, but mechanical options are available. Augers and probes take a column of soil for sampling. Shovels, scoops, and spades are used to dig up surface level, loose soil. Core samplers are augers/probes that draw the sample into a removable liner. Kits that have multiple samplers are popular options.
