Why Should You Test Moisture?
One of the most common problems for experienced and novice gardeners alike is providing the correct amount of moisture to the soil. Damage from overwatering is often difficult to remedy after the fact. Knowing how much moisture your plants are getting help you get better results from your gardening efforts.
Why Should You Test pH?
One of the key measures of the suitability of a given soil is its pH, or acidity level. The pH level determines which plants will thrive in a given soil and which may struggle. Mainly, it affects how effectively a plant can access available nutrients. For example, many plants growing in a soil with a high pH level (an alkaline soil) will have difficulty taking up available Iron and Manganese. This can cause yellowing of the leaves and general underperformance of the plant. Knowing the correct pH level for your plants will help you get better results from your gardening efforts.
