Questions & Answers

What can you do to Ajust soil ph

Asked by: Buck
Limestone will raise ph, Sulfur will lower it.

Will the test tell you what the soil need to be healthy?
Asked by: Jeffery
The tests will show you the relative levels of ph/N/P/K. Use that info to research the SOD variety you are looking to install to see what you might need to condition the soil beforehand and what fertilizers will be best to maintain it.
Answered by: John

Will this test detect chemical treatments that have been used on the soil? For example lawn treatment, weed killer

Asked by: JDav
No. But if any of those treatments affect ph/N/P/K the levels may vary at least temporarily until the soil reverts to it's natural conditions over time.

We have some good looking soil available...will this test kit tell us if it will support sod installation?... How long does the test take to provide results? Thanks...God bless
Asked by: Dave
The tests provide results quickly and give you a relative level of ph/N/P/K. Different SOD varieties have different requirements and can withstand different soil conditions, so I would ask your provider what variety would thrive best for your conditions. I added a soil conditioner and selected a variety of cold-weather fescue based on overall aesthetic and environmental conditions such as sun/shade exposure, how invasive its growth habit is, dormancy period, etc. My variety needs Nitrogen to stay green so I just need to follow the recommended maintenance and fertilizer to provide the level of nitrogen and other nutrients to help it thrive.

Rapitest Soil Test Kit, 20 Tests is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.

My house is in an area where endless tons of heavy clay were used as fill during construction, so I had to remove a lot of it and replace it with "topsoil" and peat etc. for a little kitchen garden. End of the day, there was no way to know just what I had put together .. I've gardened all my life but results were sad and I was especially concerned about the pH levels and the nitrogen. Got the soil test kit this year ... easy directions, easy to do, and I'm pretty sure I've identified the problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value Great value under $10. 20 tests is plenty. Better than spending more to get 40 tests or more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used this kit on just one dirt sample from my backyard. This is the first such test I've ever at... Used this kit on just one dirt sample from my backyard. This is the first such test I've ever attempted. It was more difficult than I expected, but appears to have been well worth the effort. The yard's grass is now flourishing. However, it is almost mid-May and growing conditions have been very good anyhow. My soil sample's Ph level was at 6 the minimum,, which was believable. The other tests showed complete depletion, which is somewhat questionable. It takes time and is somewhat complicated to gather each soil sample, prepare it, and apply the chemicals. I advise reading the directions carefully before beginning and re-checing them as you proceed to get credible and reliable results. It takes several weeks for the soil additives prescribed to penetrate the ground sufficiently to warrant repeating the soild tests. So, a followup test is important to validate the process and cause and effect results. Twice within 3 weeks, I applied 2 inexpensive bags of Lowe's pelletized lime (raise Ph) and milorganite (replenish nitrogen) with a Scotts edgeguard(?) rotary spreader. I had to bump the recommended spreader setting down quite a bit to get the coverage claimed on the bags. But, I have had to do that anyhow with the typical scott lawn fertilizers in the past. Perhaps my square footage calculations need rechecked. The real tests of success will be at the end of the summer after the typical hot and dry months and next spring, after the deer and winter have also done their damage. This kit from Home Depot was very reasonably priced and had much better reviews than Lowe's competitive product. It was likely less expensive and less time consuming than sending samples to the state college agricultural center in the Pittsburgh, PA area.

Whoever designed the capsule system is an idiot. You have to open capsules over a very small opening of the test chamber. Capsules do not open easily, and was virtually impossible to get full amount of the material inside into the test chamber. Should have supplied test material as a liquid in a bottle, or something that can be easily opened without spilling. Don't waste your money on this.
