Hello to all!
My question is: "how can I do home soli testing"?
I have experience in testing the water from a hydrophonic system, but I
have yet tested the condition of soil. I have an electronic "TDS"
meter and a "PH" tester. Can I use these pieces of equipment and how?
Thank you in advance!
Home soil testing is baggieing up soil samples from around your yard and
taking to your local County Soil Conservation Service (assuming you are in
the US) or Ag college.
As a former soils specialist, I bought small carry-around kits from here:
but they didn't work well at all, took days to find out your results sucked,
and now I don't see them listed on their website at all. You might try one
of their more professional kits they sell these days, but I'd just take it
to your county soils agent.
in Houston....where the clay wouldn't settle out of a sample for a month
