What is electrical conductivity (EC)?

Electrical conductivity is a measure of how well a substance can conduct an electric current. It is commonly used in various fields, including agriculture and hydrology, to assess the salinity or ion concentration of water or soil. The unit of measurement for EC is decisiemens per meter (dS/m). Higher dS/m values typically indicate higher levels of conductivity, often associated with a greater concentration of dissolved salts or ions in the solution or medium being measured.
