Electronic version of Luster Leaf’s popular 1601 Soil Test Kit. The rapitest Digital Soil Tester utilizes advanced LED digital technology and patent-pending optical calibration system to read test colors. The system is calibrated to read small color variations that can be difficult to distinguish with the human eye. The tester is easy to use. Just follow the easy instructions for each soil pH, nitrogen, phosphorus or potash tests; slide the test tube in optical chamber and push the appropriate button to get the test results. Once you have your soil test results, the tester booklet tells you how to adjust soil pH and provides recommendations for fertilizers. The booklet’s pH preference list allows you to select plants for your soil’s pH or know how much to adjust the soil pH for your current plants.
Phosphorus runoff poses a threat to water quality. Some states restrict the application of phosphorus-containing fertilizer on non-agricultural lawn or turf. Check your local laws prior to purchase.

I really liked that it had a chart of different crops with their ideal PH and all the hints about how to add nutrients.
It's wonderful for me to know all this about my soil.
I also gave this soil testing kit to our brother in law who has a new farm. After checking his soil with
the Luster Leaf, he found the same results as the company he had just paid to check his soil.
He had paid them $106 . Sounds like an $80 difference .
I can not used the kit, so I'm returning it for refund!
My soil is loamy and very alkaline with high ph levels. I got soil samples from three different areas of my new garden spot. I tested each sample twice to make sure I was getting accurate readings. For nitrogen, I tested my sample #1 twice. First reading showed surplus, second reading showed sufficient.
Be sure to follow the directions CAREFULLY. It's reasonably easy to do the testing and I feel I got fairly accurate readings.
