While I don't see much need for precision in PH, I do see a big need to keep within certain ranges. This video explains testing and adapting PH in soil beds and aquaponics.

Thanks Andy, checking the soil ph i something I should do more often (have not tested any soil in over 2 years), I currently have the chemical dirt type testing kit which is a little cumbersome and messy, maybe a probe will encourage more regular testing.

Cheers mate.  It's amazing when you have one that actually works.

Is that your new test probe?

Good video Andy.

The instructions don't say anything helpful Elaine.  I just be a bit patient and wait until it stops moving (ever so slowly).  Probably only 2 or 3 minutes.

Good one one, Andy. How long do you leave the meter in before taking the reading?

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
