Terrible meter, will not give even close to consistent readings
I bought this meter to check moisture content of some products we have at work. I have had some material out of the rain in a building for months and went to check the moisture. It would never give the same reading, even in the exact same location. The readings varied 8-10% on a consistent homogenous pile of material.

This soil moisture instrument is not acurate
The manufacture recommends to insert the probe 3 inches into the soil, it works if the soil is not compacted but if it is the instrument does not work or the readings are not accurate.
