Everyone in the cultivation sector knows how important it is that plants and seeds get the right nutritional proportions. Buying an EC meter helps to improve the cultivation yield, because the nutrient density can be determined. Based on this, a grower can decide to adjust the composition of the nutrient or the amount of food, in order to achieve better plant growth or seed growth.
EC stands for Electric Conductivity. The EC value can be seen as a device that makes it possible to measure the salinity in the substrate or in the nutrient water. For plants, flowers and other crops, the amount of salt in a food product gives a good indication of whether your cultivated material is getting enough good nutrients and minerals.
How should an EC meter be used? Handy usage tips for growers!
The use of an EC meter is very difficult. In particular, keeping it clean and then storing an EC meter are important points of attention. Because you want to be able to perform measurements with the device in a few years' time. Make sure the meters used are properly calibrated and calibrated. For this you have specialist calibration fluids, which ensure that the electrical part of your EC meter remains in good condition. To store your EC meter, you should use a storage cap, which is filled with special EC liquid to protect the meter.
Finally, the use of an EC meter is of course only useful if you as a grower know which EC values your plants and crops should have during the cultivation process. Plant species have different nutritional needs and therefore do not have the same EC value. Always check which EC values your plants, flowers and / or crops need. You can find the EC values in cultivation manuals and inserts, but also easily look them up online, for example via a so-called cultivation schedule calculator.
