DM-5 Soil pH Meter

Excellent value, compact and very easy to use for quick pH assessment, with carrying case.

Being analogue it uses the negative/positive charge in the soil clay particles, so requires no corroding batteries.

Users - Farmers (arable & grassland), lime spreading contractors, & agronomists for instant check to assess problem pHs.

Any field pH meter should be backed up by laboratory testing where more precise readings are required. Due to huge variations in soil types, moisture levels etc, we have not found any reason to replace DM-5 with more advanced digital pH meters.

Soil Compaction Tester / Penetrometer


  • Agriculture,
  • Horticulture,
  • Racing Turf,
  • Golf Greens
  • Cricket,
  • Sports fields, etc.



The Soil Compaction Testers give quick answers to the questions you need to ask for SPS Cross-Compliance* and about your tillage programme and field conditions:

  • Is your soil compacted?
  • How severely and at what depth
  • How deep are you tilling?
  • How deep do you need to till?
  • How deep can your roots grow?



Compaction causes serious problems on many soils:

  1. Require up to 90% more power (& more fuel) to till
  2. Cause poor root development and big yield reduction
  3. Causes poor natural water movement and uptake
  4. Poor Fertiliser & Pesticide utilisation
