A good soil probe is to an irrigation scheduler what a hammer is to a carpenter: once he's found the right one, he'll refuse to use anything else. The Lord Probe soil sampler was designed by Joe Lord to meet the needs of professionals. Whether you need to take a soil sample for nutrient analysis, or whether you need to determine soil moisture content, the Lord Probe is the best tool for the job.

The Lord Probe soil sampler is designed with the features needed by people who sample soil for a living. These features make the probe easier to use which then makes those long days just a little easier on you. Some of these features include:


Uniform Shaft Thickness
The shaft of the lord probe soil sampler is 1" thick from the handle to the tip. There is no shoulder to get hung up when trying to retrieve the probe from the ground. The probe simply pulls straight out of the ground.
Raised Bead on the Tip
OK. The shaft is not entirely uniform in thickness. The sampling tip of the probe has a raised bead around its circumference. This raised bead is the key to retrieving the soil probe easily from ground. That raised bead creates a hole that is slightly larger than the rest of the shaft. This ensures that your soil probe will lift out easily from the ground when retrieving your sample.
Replaceable Tip
Sampling will eventually wear down the raised bead on the tip. Once that happens, you can simply replace the tip of the soil probe. Unscrew the old one, add the new one, and you're off and sampling. With proper care of your Lord Soil Sampler, this tip may be the only part you will ever need to replace.
Generous Sample Volume
The Lord Probe soil sampler collects approximately 150 ml of soil at a time.
Molded Depth Markings
The Lord Probe soil sampler is marked every six inches by a line molded into the shaft. No more magic marker lines to rub off.
Modular Design
The Lord Probe soil sampler has been designed with flexibility in mind. In addition to the standard probe illustrated above, an extension sleeve is available allowing the probe to be lengthened to a total of five feet. Ideal for sampling orchards and vineyards.
