Onset’s HOBO MX Soil Moisture and Temperature Data Loggers

The Industry’s Only Low-Cost, Fully Integrated Soil Moisture Loggers with Bluetooth Wireless Data Offload

HOBO MX Soil Moisture Data Loggers are available in two models – one that measures soil moisture (HOBO MX2306) and one that measures both soil moisture and temperature (HOBO MX2307) – these loggers are ideal for researchers and growers looking for the accurate data they need to save water, improve crop yields, reduce harmful runoff, and protect ecosystems.
