Rapitest meters combine electronic technology with ease of use to assure gardening success. The meters offer today’s gardeners one of the easiest and most convenient methods to test their soil.
Soil meters help you know what your garden plants need at any given time. You can use a soil probe to test the soil for moisture content and for the pH, both of which influence the health of your plants. Before you water, fertilize, add lime, or add to your soil, use a soil meter to test.
Many people add lime to the lawn or fertilize their plants on a schedule, as opposed to when the plants need it. By using a pH meter to test the pH, you can tell whether you need to spend the time or money on these gardening chores. If the pH is wrong, fertilizer won’t make a difference, and you’ll need to correct the pH before fertilizing. If the pH is at the correct level, you don’t need to add lime.
A soil moisture meter comes in handy to give you a true picture of what’s happening under the soil surface. It can be difficult to tell whether there’s adequate moisture in the soil just from looking at the ground or at your plants. Use a soil probe to make sure that you water plants when they need it—you’ll grow bigger and healthier plants.
