Rapitest Soil Test Kit
Rapitest Soil Test Kit
by Luster Leaf®
Healthy and fertile soil is the single most important factor to ensuring healthy plants and a productive harvest. Keeping in mind that fertility can vary greatly from location to location throughout your yard and gardens, sending multiple soil samples to a laboratory and paying for each individual test can get quite expensive. Additionally, once you receive the results and amend your soil accordingly, retesting is the prescribed course of action, adding further cost.
The Rapitest® Soil Test Kit by Luster Leaf® offers a very affordable means of testing a number of soil conditions using an easy capsule system and unique color comparators. The system is simple to use, no experience is required, and the results are fast and accurate. The Rapitest® Soil Test Kit contains enough material for forty total tests; This includes ten individual tests for pH, Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P) and Potash (K) levels.
Simply mix your soil sample with water, then drain out as much water as possible. Next, dissolve one of the test capsules from the test kit and compare the color against the handy, easy-to-understand included chart. The information that comes with this kit includes pH and N-P-K levels for hundreds of plant species. It also includes complete instructions for fertilization and adjusting soil conditions. (A copy of the instructions, in PDF format, can be downloaded here.)
