I want to design circuit of Electical Conductivity which we used for Soil(While Moving on the filed of truck) measurement. In the Truck we need to connect has 4 electrode method
For 1st and 4th(last) has Need to provide the current and 2 and 3 electrodes need to measure potential voltage.
We are suing the battery of 12V..
Kindly provide the reference circuit for the same.
Based on your information to me it seems like you are looking for instrumentation amplifier that can measure voltage across electrodes 2 and 3? Is that right ? If yes, please let me know and I can help you connect with the group that can help you with instrument amplifier selection.

In reply to Arjun_Prakash:
Thank you for your replay. Yes we want to measure the volatge at electrode 2 and 3 points.
We are using the below method to calculate the electrical conductivity
The first and last electrodes we are injecting the current. so due to potential force electrode 2 and 3 will get the Volatge.
In this we want measure the current flowing through electrodes and volatge of elctrodes 2 and 3.
So can we measure this values by microcontroller ADC pins. We are giving the input of battery supply and that will giving the LM317 input and will doing the constant current of 50mA.
So kindly advice and provide the solution.

As your question is related to LM317. I am transferring your thread to LDO group.Thanks for your patience.
The following TI Application Note goes into detail on the various soil measurement techniques, and may be useful for your work.

I believe your question has to do with how to use the LM317 as a current source.Please clarify if this is not the case.
The LM317 datasheet shows an application where you can use this as a current source.I've copied the circuit below.
Keep in mind that other current sources exist which may be options. See the LM134/LM234/LM334 series of current sources.
Let me know if this did not answer your question.
