On-Site Analysis for Growing, Farming and Soil Management
Palintest, leaders in the supply of specialist water and environmental analysis equipment, have launched a complete new range of soil testing kits. The kits are designed for use ‘in the field’, and cover all levels of user requirement.
The kits are tailored to cater for the needs of everyone from the keen gardener to the professional soil specialist: from a simple ‘colour match’ pH & lime requirement testing kit (the SK 100), to the comprehensive Complete Soil Kit (SK 500) which provides both macro and micro nutrient analysis.
Soil testing is integral to effective agricultural and horticultural management, as well as a vital aspect of disaster relief and recovery efforts. The safety and suitability of soil for use can be measured quantitatively by testing for the presence and concentration of various chemical elements. This can be carried out by taking samples and sending them away to a laboratory for analysis and awaiting the results – or, with the right equipment and components, tested for instantly on the spot.
The kits are supplied with portable carrying cases for both the chemicals and instruments, and include easy-to-follow instructions for correct usage. The Palintest Soil Test Kits use reagents compressed into a stable tablet form for easy, safe and precise transportation and application. This negates the need for the careful measurement and handling of liquid components in the field. The more advanced kits also include a portable Palintest photometer, which makes the measurement even quicker, easier, and more accurate.
