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 3.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time and money on this It doesn't work. I bought it to test the soil's NPK before spring planting. Per instructions, I dug 4" deep of soil and mixed it 1:5 with water and waited 30mins to 24hours. My soil type is loamy so the test samples do have some suspension particles but per instructions it is OK. 1) Opening the capsules was a PAIN. It was difficult to open without spilling the powder. Messy clean up and there's lack of ingredients/ content on packaging. I don't know what I'm breathing in. Had to open it on a clean coffee filter and then funnel it down the test chamber. 2) Nitrogen test result is inaccurate. All my samples show depleted. One was my soil, one was with a balanced fertilizer, and third with blood meal. Seriously!!! I wasted so much of my time for a piece of junk!!! 3) Phosphorus has a blue dye. So no matter what you put in, it will be blue. Plain water shows adequate phosphorus. Seriously!!! 4) Potassium is not any better. The color dye is orange/brown so it was difficult to read the result when it is the soil's nature color. 5) No expiration date. Please don't waste your money and time on this junk. It's better to do the real thing. Send your soil sample to lab and wait for results. I'm returning mine back to Home Depot. Grr. More waste of my time.

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.

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.
