A Good Tester

I used this tester to measure pH several places on my 60,000 sq ft lawn. I followed instructions carefully. All readings were lower than neutral. This verified that I need to add some lime to the lawn this fall. I am pleased with the tester.

Great tool for the garden. Scale is sometimes not intuitive and could be confusing if not familiar before use. One scale moves up scale and another down scale so needle movement isn't consistent necessarily with positive results. But great tool for any gardener.

Robust and Easy to Use Tester
Posted by: K. M. from Oak Harbor, WA on 02/09/2015
Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
A must have addition to your garden tool kit! This particular soil testing system is a great starter tool for all aspiring "green thumb" gardeners who seek quickly adjust for troublesome soil conditions. It's especially good for new garden beds and seasonally rotated gardens. In the short time that we've owned it, the only downside has been that the unit and it's delicate sensor rods need to be guarded/stored very carefully in order to prevent it from being damaged, but otherwise this is a robust little gadget. Inclusion of a molded storage container would be the ideal (and so far the only) improvement I would make to the product and would make this a 5-Star product. Good luck and Happy gardening!

Product Q&A
Ask a Question for This Product
Sort By:
Q.If this is a "Mini", how does it compare to a larger size soil tester?
Your comments refer once to a "Mini Four- in - One Soil Tester." How deep do the metal prongs probe into the soil? Does it matter? Do you get a useful reading of the soil if most vegetable roots extend about one foot beyond the depth of the prongs?
A.Thank you for your inquiry. The prongs insert up to 5" deep and are capable of giving you an accurate reading down to a foot below the surface. That being said, these are not "industrial" testers, which can read several feet below the surface. These are designed for garden use. I hope that this answers your questions. If you'd like to order this tester, please call us at 800-376-9637 or simply place it in your shopping cart online.

Q.Does the meter give separate readings for nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash, or does it give some sort of combined number?
If a combined number, please explain!
A.Thank you for your inquiry. The meter reads all three individually. The scale of each is calibrated to a single needle and each element can be read independently. I have one and use it for wildlife food plots. It is very helpful. I hope that this answers youir question. If you'd like to order one please calll us at 800-376-9637.
