Use the MicroBIOMETER to monitor your soil, gauge which management practices are increasing your microbes, check the quality of your compost, and more, all with one tool.
Improving the health of your soil is essential to increasing your output, but how can you tell if you are making progress? Research shows that microbial biomass (fungi and bacteria) is the leading indicator of soil health. Living soil fixes nutrients, improves plant immunity, stores water more efficiently and builds soil structure, therefore, a healthy level of microbes increases productivity while reducing inputs.
MicroBIOMETER® is a low cost, 20-minute on-site soil test for microbial biomass and fungal to bacterial ratio that allows you to quickly determine the health of your soil. Frequent retesting will provide you with the data necessary to identify if your soil management practices are working.
