microBioMeter soil test starter kit with 10 sample cards
A measure of Soil health in the palm of your hand!
The patented microbiometer soil test only takes around 10 minutes to perform, yet accuracy is on par with lab tests costing 10 times as much. Mix sifted soil for 30 seconds in the reagent solution, let it settle for 10 minutes, place 3 drops on our test card, scan it with our smart phone app, and you are done – it really is that simple! The results are archived and accessible in the cloud.
Soil health is the topic of much discussion but until now, there has not been any simple way to give an objective measure. The microBIOMETER is the answer. Microbial biomass is the best single indicator of soil health. (Doran, 2000). The microBioMeter in conjunction with a smartphone app provides a single number which can be used for decision making.
Using a free smart phone app, the microBIOMETER is able to provide an objective measurement of soil microbial activity for approximately £10 per sample, now also giving the ratio of bacterial to fungal microbes. The app also provides a GPS location and the date/time when accessed.

We believe that microbial biomass is the single best measurement of soil health. You cant manage what you dont measure. Knowing the microbial biomass of the soil in each field enables the wise farmer to evaluate the effect of manures, cover crops, microbial inoculants, fertilisers, cultivation practices, etc. Have you measured yours recently?
