The acid meter allows you to accurately check the condition of the soil by clearly defining its condition. This is useful when we want to grow fruitful plants and vegetables. The device does not require a battery power supply, it gives an infinite number of measurements without incurring additional costs. Plants should only be watered if the meter readings are lower than recommended.
Knowledge of the substrate makes it easier to plan and then maintain the right conditions for your crop. We are able to act consciously and obtain satisfactory yields.
Moisture measurement - set the switch to MOIST position - to the left
Place the meter in the ground, put it in the height of 5-10cm - do it gently so as not to damage the roots of plants and the meter - the sensor is located at the ends of the spikes.
The reading is obtained immediately.
pH measurement - set the switch to the pH position - to the right
The best way to prepare a soil sample is to take it from several sites for a reliable test. For each 100 m2 of plot a minimum of 3-4 soil samples should be taken from a depth of about 20 cm. We can prepare it in a jar. It is recommended to remove roots, stones, etc. completely. Then pour in a small amount of water to keep the soil moist. Push the probes in gently and wait for the measurement.
The reading will be reliable after a minute.
SCALE 3. 5-8
Depending on the reading, it may be necessary to acidify the soil - lower the pH or deacidify - raise the pH to meet the requirements of the plants.
In order to increase the pH, use calcium fertilizers, which will provide the plants with calcium by regulating the pH of the substrate. To lower the pH it is necessary to acidify the soil using e. g. acidifying fertilizer.
Examples of trees and bushes which prefer a given reading
<4. 5 VERY Sour - blueberry, cranberry
4,6-5,5 AUSTRIES - raspberry, gooseberry, azaleas, rhododendron, hydrangea
5,6-6,5 Sour light - apple, pear, currant, rose, magnolia
6,6-7,2 COVERED - cherry, cherry, plum, apricot, peach, apricot
Example of soil pH for vegetables!
Broad beans 6. 2-7. 0
white cabbage 6,2-7,7
Chinese cabbage 6,2-7,0
Savoy cabbage 6,2-7,0
dill 5. 5-6. 5
Sunlight - set the switch to the LIGHT position - in the middle
Point the light sensor at the source and the scale will show the degree of illumination.
After each measurement, wipe the device with a cloth.
