Soil pH & Moisture Tester
Soil PH & Moisture Meter DM-15 An excellent concept, the DM-15 Soil Tester is a fast and simple method of obtaining accurate values of both soil pH and moisture levels. The metallic electrode is simply inserted into the soil and the moisture or pH level can be checked on the dial.
FOR HOME AND GARDEN USE:
Although we are apt to think that proper amounts of manure and moisture added to the soil are sufficient for vegetable growth, excessive acidity or alkalinity or moisture deficiencies will inhibit the effective absorption of nutrients. Therefore, to grow good crops, careful attention must be paid to relationship between soil acidity and moisture.
When the DM-15 is inserted in the soil with the white button on its side left undepressed, it works as an acidity ( pH value) meter. When the white button is depressed after it has been inserted in the soil, it works as a moisture meter.
Soil moisture control is extremely important. Soil moisture is usually express in units termed pH, a generally unfamiliar term to people who cultivate. However, Takemura’ s tester, which combines a pH with a moisture meter, is easy to use. Soil moisture can be determined at a single glance.
HOW TO USE THE DM-15:
Insert the meter’ s metallic electrode in the soil completely, while positioning the electrode as near crop roots as possible.Scale divisions range from 1 to 8, each of which reads the moisture value accordingly to soil condition.The need for water can be determined by the position of the pointer.
