General Tools Long-Stem Agricultural Thermometer – I ordered this 36" thermometer for my wife to use for gardening; we found it is easy on the back checking the temperature of the lawn for applying crabgrass preventer and the garden soil for certain plants. My wife plants dahlia tubers every year and the ground temperature should be 60 degrees. She also has a 3-section compost bin and this lets her know how it's doing in the middle of the pile. She used the thermometer in the compost bin recently and was happy to find out the pile is already warming up a bit even though it is still chilly outside. It is a little pricey, but it is certainly is made well and the stainless-steel probe is thick enough that you don't have to worry about it bending as long as the ground isn't frozen or very dry and hard. The dial is large and very easy to read and its accuracy is good. We’re hoping it lasts many years.

This long-stem agricultural thermometer is just a bit over 36” long, so it should work for a very large pile of compost! I’m in the process of building myself a 3-bin composting station and think this will certainly help me achieve the proper temperatures for generating my own compost effectively. I’m really looking forward to using this and plan to keep it close-by in my little greenhouse. Since it’s made of stainless steel, I expect it to last a long time.

The 3 ft. Long-Stem Agricultural Thermometer by General Tools is well-made and it is a great tool for composting. To get the best result, I usually like to keep the compost at a higher temperature. If the compost got overheated, it could kill all the good bacterial and nutrients. I was able to closely monitor the temperature of the compost as it progresses. This thermometer is easy to use and it is a great product.

Living in North Mississippi, it is always a thing of pride to see who has the best garden. This Long-Stem Agricultural Thermometer from General tools gives me a head start. The three inch dial is very easy to read. And id graduated in both Centigrade and Fahrenheit. This lets me know just when is the best ground temperature to plant my tomatoes and peppers. I checked to see if it was properly calibrated, and it was dead on. But just in case there is an adjustment screw on the back. Looking forward to getting my garden started.

Whether I’m needing to figure the soil temperature for a round of pre emergent weed killer in early spring or trying to figure the temperature of my sand for a concrete mix, this thermometer is perfect. A 3 ft long stem with a spike on the end allows it to pierce material and get a deep reading, away from the top layer. Or if I’m checking the top layer of my soil I don’t need to get all the way on the ground to get a reading. It’s easy to read on the 3 inch display which reads in increments of 2 degrees, from 0-200 Fahrenheit, or 105 Celsius. While the stem is a little flexible it is still durable. Out of the box it was spot on accurate but in case it gets off there is a calibrator on the back which can be adjusted with a screwdriver or a 7mm hex driver.

This long-stem agricultural thermometer is another great product from General Tools. Upon receipt I immediately began using it on a daily basis to monitor the ground temperature on our property. For various pre-emergent weed and crabgrass chemicals to work properly they need to be applied at the correct ground temperature. I will also be using this thermometer later in the spring to determine when the soil is warm enough that I can safely put my tomato plants in the ground. The thermometer appears to be very well made with a large and easy to read dial. With proper care I expect this long-stem thermometer to last me a lifetime. Well done General Tools!

I was really excited to receive this long stem agricultural thermometer because I am planning on planting and fertilizing some Bermuda grass seed for animal grazing and it germinates best when the soil reaches a certain temperature. I suspected that the soil is not quite warm enough yet but I have used the thermometer to find out. It is very easy to use because of the long stem. We have had a lot of rain in our area recently so it went into the ground easily and quickly. The readings are in Farenheit and Centrigrade. I have not had it long enough to address durability but it seems to be well made and does have a one year warranty.

If you raise chickens and use the compost on your gardens you'll really appreciate having the General Tools long stem agricultural thermometer. Temperature is an important factor in the composting process along with the carbon nitrogen ratio making a thermometer of this type a necessary tool. I compost the bedding from my coop and also compost yard trimmings. Depending on what is composting, the process can be either cold or hot. I do grow vegetables sold at the farmers market and a part of my organic certification, I must follow guidelines to keep that rating. Regardless of the vessel you use for composting and regardless of whether you maintain organic gardens, sound practices of composting involves turning the compost to aerate it to keep the decomposition and fermentation going. Temperature must be maintained between 131- and 170-degrees F to know when to turn the compost. Without an ag thermometer you would have difficulty achieving the highest grade of compost. The General Tools long stem thermometer is perfect for composting. I really like the solid feel between the gauge and 3 ft stem. The probe is highly responsive to temperature which makes compost maintenance a lot easier. Currently I have a cold pile breaking down and inserted the thermometer to gauge its accuracy. The temp was right on the button and even though this is a cold compost pile, the internal temp still reads 60F in spite of a cold damp spring day at 37*F. The gauge itself is large and easy to read and with 10 degree intervals you can easily see fractional degrees. I also like to be able to monitor the soil temperature in my raised garden beds as an additional measure to determine optimum planting temps. As you can see my raised bed measures 56*F and is ready for planting peas. overall I find the General Tools long stem agriculture thermometer accurate, well made and expect it to last for years.

Since spring feeding of a lawn is dependent on temperature, a quality agricultural thermometer is vital for one's garden shed. This long-stem thermometer fits the bill perfectly. The long stem makes placing the thermometer in the ground easy, enabling multiple readings in the yard a breeze. Readings are in both Fahrenheit and Centigrade. Made with stainless steel so the instrument should last.

first things first this thermometer is 3 feet tall. I had this in the box for 2 days before I got to open it up. The temp is right on the money out of the box. Its construction is very strong and made out of stainless steel.The analog dial is big enough to ready very easily. You wont or don't have to bend over to use this like a same BBQ thermometer. With spring around the corner at 55 degrees I will be putting my pre emergent done soon enough.
