Why Our Soil Kits Are The Better Option

If you perform a search on the internet for soil test kits, you will be offered the usual selection of home chemistry sets with test tubes and dropper-bottles with a few ounces of chemicals that you probably don't want to have around your house anyway - and instructions on how to mix 3 ml of solution A with .8 ounces of solution B with 2 grams of your soil dried and ground down to a semi-fine granular-powder, or maybe not even that much trouble. Then compare the resulting yellow or blue solution to this faded, printed color-chart and whichever shade seems closest that tells you your range of whatever-it-is compound. From that point, assuming you've measured all of the componenets correctly and deduced the results accurately, it is presumed that you know what to do with your soil for your plants at your resulting amounts of whatever-they-are.

With TP&S Lab's mail-in soil test kits you have an easy way to return your sample. You relieve yourself of the labor of performing messy chemistry tests. You avoid unwanted clutter and chemicals in your home. You get laboratory accurate results and recommendations based on generations of agricultural knowledge.
