In farming, the pH of the soil has a strong influence on the productivity of you crops. Soil pH will determine, root development, nutrient availability, nitrogen fixation by leguminous plants as well as the microbial activities in soil.
Knowing the pH of the soil is therefore very important in gardening. Knowing the temperature of both the environment and the soil is also important when making decisions about crop growth as well as the application of fertilizers on the farm or garden.
It is a combined temperature logger and pH tester. It has a fast response temperature sensor that can measure temperature in either OC or OF. the sensor is exposed and has an automatic temperature compensation feature for enhanced performance.
The pH electrode cartridge is replicable which makes the tester immensely durable. The accuracy in pH testing is enhanced by a 1 or 2-point automatic calibration to known buffer. There is also a stability indicator that shows when a stable reading is achieved. A unique extendable cloth junction has been incorporated in the tester to clear any clogging that may occur.
The tactile grip casing, waterproof capability, and a design to allow floating make the Hanna pHep4 Tester a great tool to have.
