pH Bodemtest - soil acidity tester
Suggest to friends:
The pH-BODEMTEST soil acidity tester contains a complete set of reagents for conducting soil acidity studies under field conditions. It consists of a bottle with distilled water, test tubes with a cork and packaging of tablets with a reagent.
Soil acidity is usually expressed in terms of pH, having a range from 0 to 14. A decrease in pH per unit means an increase in soil acidity by a factor of 10. At a pH of 7.0, the soil has a neutral reaction, above - alkaline, below - acidic.
The right choice of soil acidity is of key importance in creating favorable conditions for plant growth and the vital activity of soil microorganisms. Despite the fact that some plant species require an acidic or alkaline environment for their development, most prefer neutral or weakly acidic soils with a pH in the range of 6.0-7.0. PH = 6.5 can be considered the optimal average acidity value for the soil of your garden.
To determine the pH, several samples are taken in different parts of the soil to be studied, from a depth of 5 to 15 cm. The collected samples are mixed and filled the tube with soil for 1 cm. Then add 2 ml (2.5 cm of the tube height) of distilled water (the bottle is included in kit) and a tablet of reagent, cork and carefully shake to dissolve the tablet. After a couple of minutes, when the soil settles to the bottom, the color of the liquid is compared with the scale on the package and the pH value is assessed.
One set is designed for 8 measurements.
The instructions provide preferred soil pH values for common crops.
Use of Azet-Kalk lime for soil liming and pH
To correct the pH of the soil, it is necessary to regularly liming it. The use of 100% natural lime "Ecostyle" brand "Azet-Kalk" is the best choice for liming your soil.
"Azet-Kalk" - soft, all-season lime, enriched with microorganisms. The product is easy to use, has a granular structure and contains more than 80% of calcium and magnesium carbonates.
Recommended limits on liming are given in the Azet-Kalk lime instructions.
