You can purchase many different types of 'one shot' tests at most garden centers, or for about $15.00 there is metal probe with meter devices available.

Also , you can read up on what plants/weeds grow in certain Ph levels....around here( MO) we have a weed called poverty grass and you know if you see it in your field that your acid level is climbing and you need lime. You could probably find this on the web....had a list at one time and quite interesting to identify plants on your place. We actually have a very fertile farm as long as we keep the lime up; have a local source for organic fertilizer at very competitive prices...when we moved here our garden site was barren but now we have red wigglers big as small snakes..quite scary when you dig one up!!!!

Hi Mike,
Around here the fertilizer company will test your soil for free if you buy your fertilizer from them, includes Ph and everything else. Might check out the Yellow Pages.
