Operating devices for soil cultivation in arid conditions should not carry the lower layers to the surface of the field, since this leads to the loss of moisture due to its evaporation. Purpose of work is to determine the moisture content in the soil after using new operating devices. There been developed technique of determining the moisture content in the soil after exposure to operating devices by studying the movement of soil layers in the vertical direction and comparing their moisture. The movement of soil in the vertical direction is quantified by a comparative study of the moisture content in the upper and lower layers of the treated formation before and after exposure to operating devices. Using appropriate equipment, there were determined the moisture content in the most susceptible to evaporation surface layer of 0–5 cm and then the average value of the layer-by-layer measurement up to a depth of 25 ÷ 35 cm, depending on the selected operating modes of the operating device.
