Descent soil ph

What is a descent soil pH meter not to expensive

I usually rely on slurry test for checking the condition of my soils, any decent meter that’ll have any good readings will run $120 on the bottom end. Equal parts soil and distilled water shake we’ll let sit for 24hrs strain and test.

Use standard PH meter and perform a slurry test.

20 minutes is plenty.

Thank you for the correction, I’ve always let it stand for a while…. Maybe I should consider re-testing?

I’m sure you’re getting good data with a 24 hour soak. But with R/O or distilled it will immediately adopt the base PH of the medium.

Amazingly, us old dogs, can learn new trick. Now can we remember the new stuff, or is the RAM full.
