The Turf Lab test kit features colorimetric analysis of turf soils. Nutrients are measured as clear liquid-extracts and are read against translucent color standards in an Octa-Slide comparator. This method gives a reliable, efficient, and practical way of measuring the soil nutrients nitrogen, phosphorus and iron. The kit also measures pH and texture. Another advancement is available with the potassium test, which uses a turbidity tube calibrated to read directly in pounds per acre for low to high values. Analyses of calcium and magnesium are conducted with Direct Reading Titrators.
The LaMotte Turf Lab kit can be used efficiently and accurately in the field and in the lab. A 15 cm brass soil sampler with a small 1 cm core diameter easily removes soil samples from the turf. A pad of soil report forms, soil sampling bags, and a copy of the LaMotte Soil Handbook are furnished with complete reagents and labware in a rugged carrying case.
