Questions & Answers

how do you use the soil test kit to determine the lead in soil? thank you
Asked by: Teresa
To get lead content of your soil, contact or visit website of your county or state extension office/service and see requirements for soil testing. I would ask if they test for lead. Sending soil samples to your county extension office can take time, depends on how busy the office is. This service could even be free, or a small fee per sample sent.

Do you sell a kit that detects Round-up or other toxins located in the soil. Trying to start an organic garden from the dirt up.
Asked by: LW
Not that I am aware, but on the safe side, two weeks is the usual time frame for Round Up to be completely gone from the soil after application.

Rapitest Soil Test Kit, 40 Tests is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 11.

I bought this to primarily verify the pH of two other pH testers, each of which you stick a probe into the ground to measure the pH. But both differed by up to 1 pH unit. So I thought this could settle the discrepancy. Unfortunately this Rapitest gave "way off" results. It's name implies a relatively quick test, but how quick is it when it suggests you may have to wait 24 hours for results?? And preparing the sample is tedious and time consuming. Still, it might be worth it if the accompanying NPK tests were somewhat accurate, but it failed miserably there too. In three areas of my yard it said my Nitrogen levels were "depleted". Yet, I had just fertilized my lawn two weeks earlier, so at least Nitrogen should have been relatively good! And color matching was problematic. When you have only red and orange to pick from, how do you compare it to pink? And I found the chemical capsules very hard to open. I ended up having to rip off the end with my fingernail to access the powder inside. Consequently, I'm TOTALLY disappointed with this product.

Did what it was made for; told me what the PH and the nitrogen level were. Soil test kit was easy to use. It helped me figure out what chemicals to add in my garden my plants are doing very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kingman soil I was surprised that the soil here in Kingman is not as devoid of nutrients as I thought. This information would not have been available to me without being able to test it. Instructions were easy to follow. Chambers are a little difficult to clean however. Also the containers don't stand very well on their own. It would be nice to have some sort of tray for them to sit in.

You do need some backlit sunlight to see the colors with. The capsules are a little difficult to work with since they are the size of pills and it doesn't help to have hands shaking when trying to get them into the small containers. Only had time to test one location in the yard so far but based on the results, I have slightly acidic soil with no nitrogen and an abundance of potash and phosphorus.
