Understanding soil pH and texture will help you make better soil management decisions. The pH and Soil Texture Kit combines two of the most important indicators of soil health. The kit provides for 45 pH test paper and soil texture analyses, packaged in protective air tight tubes and rugged plastic carry case. The inside lid and base of the case contain a soil pH color chart (inside lid) and soil textural triangle (inside base) for visual test result interpretation. An instruction leaflet is included with sample testing vessel and ruler for measuring soil texture components “separates”.

Soil pH has a major effect on the solubility of minerals and nutrients, improving their absorption and assimilation by plants. It influences the activity of soil beneficial microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi. It affects the mobility and degradation of herbicides and insecticides, and the solubility of heavy metals.

Soil texture refers to soil's physical properties and its relationship to soil moisture. It is the composition of the soil in terms of the proportion of small, medium, and large mineral particles in a specific soil mass (clay, silt and sand). Soil texture and structure greatly influence water infiltration, permeability, and water-holding capacity.
