Electronic Soil Tester is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well When Following Directions I purchased this about a year or two ago. Just put in 2 raised garden beds. The vegetables growing from seeds are not thriving, so I decided to test the soil. First try the reading did not work. The needle did not move. I decided to soak the area for two to three minutes and tried again. It worked perfectly. So if you are having trouble make sure you use a lot of water before testing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOES NOT WORK - DONY BUY Tested my soil and everything was showing a PH of 7 to 6. Thought that was strange so tested this in distilled vinegar and said PH is about 6.5. Really?? Come on. I know enough that that reading is way off. Fertility reads 3.5 so the meter works. DO NOT BUY THIS!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea - It just doesn't work! When I saw this tester I thought what a great idea! However, after trying 2 of them, they just don't work. Don't waste your money, buy a real soil tester!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soil cleans the probes Oxidation layers on the probe ends WILL result in nuetral measurement. Its you not the probe. The soil scratches the metal and makes a pure contact. Let the meter sit around and then pull it out and stick it in some muddy water off your soil sample and IT WIL NOT WORK AS DESIGNED. Found out the hard way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work I bought it today and I couldn't get it to read anything but a 6.5 or 7 so I decided to check it in white distilled vinegar and it read 6.5 not 2.4 and I moved it to fertility and it moved to 5.5 so it does move it just doesn't work

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't buy! I bought this a couple weeks ago and it doesn't seem to work. (I did move the switch to ph or fertility) When I bought it the needle was pointed to 7 even though it was off which I thought was odd. When I put it in the ground-different places-the needle hardly moved. I deliberately put it where I knew the ground to be rich or poor. I will take it back -but I am disappointed. I really wanted a soil tester. I like other Burpee products.
