I grew up on a farm and I've been gardening for over 50 years. When I was a child, we took soil samples to our county agent every few years and guessed during the years between samples. That was not often enough for NKP or PH. The County Agent's report covered 6 or 8 more things such as borax, aluminum, and calcium. Those things change very slowly and only need to be tested for only every 5 to 10 years. In the fifties and sixties, we just assumed the soil would need lime each year; it was acid. However, the amount we used was calculated by rule of thumb. Others used the taste test; tasting the soil to tell if it was sweet or sour; better than nothing but very distasteful when the fertilizer of choice is manure.

If you do no other tests, do this one! PH controls whether or not a plant can take up nutrients. All the fertilizer in the world will not help, if the PH is wrong. I purchased the full test set as well as this one so that I could do more frequent PH tests and in more places such as around shrubs, bushes, and trees, especially fruiting trees and bushes. I have been using these products for at least 20 years. This purchase was just to renew my supply. I can usually go 2 or3 years with a full Luster Leaf set plus an extra PH test set. Buy and use it!. It will save you money on fertilizer and you can have the best garden in the neighborhood!

I bought this item because my tomatoes were getting soft bottoms from excessively acidic soil last season. After liming and waiting a few weeks, the tester showed slightly acidic. Even though they are not ripe yet, the plants are obviously healthier and show none of the early sings of the problem. This product took all of the guess work out.

This test was pretty accurate for the price. It is a color test so the accuracy is based on your ability to distinguish the colors. I use a $1500 pH meter in the lab and this kit was within 0.5 of the read. I would recommend this product.

Instructions are very clear and simple. The test itself takes only about 3 to 5 minutes to do. (Though if you go on to test N, P, and K with Luster Leaf's test kit for those elements, those tests will take a few hours - hands on time for those other tests is still only a few minutes though).

Worked perfectly and very easy to use. The set comes with a bunch of capsules so you can use it a bunch of times.

Needed to test the pH of some soil where I plan on growing some fruit bushes that need acidic soil. The reviews on the digital/needle pH meters weren't that good so I decided to go with the trusty chemical reaction method. It worked great and it was easy to do. Unfortunately my soil is too alkaline so I need to do some work to get it into the acidic range. Fortunately the soil tester comes with quite a bit of instructions for how to do this. Only downside to this product is that it only comes with 10 capsules to test the soil, but you can order more. Overall I would recommend this over any of the digital/needle soil testers, plus it's a lot cheaper.

It works for me cheap and accurate compared to a test from USDA. Test with pure distilled water first to use as the basis then begin testing, always use the same location and light source to view tester. Collect samples and bring them to a location where you can work comfortably especially if its cold the little capsules can be a pain to open and use especially if your hands are frozen.

Comparing all of the other products out there took a while. There are so many different methods of doing this. But, this one was cheap and most importantly it worked. It gave me a pretty good idea of the contents of my soil and I was able to make additions to it for a pH that I wanted for a vegetable garden. This past Summer it produced so much that I couldn't keep up with it. So, apparently I got it right, thanks to checking the pH.
