Replaces costly lab tests with real time testing on living soil
Sending your soil out for lab testing is costly and can take weeks to get results. microBIOMETER® allows you to test your living soil on-site with results available in around 10 minutes for a cost of about $10 a test. microBIOMETER® is faster, less expensive and provides a higher level of accuracy than lab microscopy.
Monitors the effectiveness of your soil amendments
Precious time and money is wasted waiting for your plants to tell you what they need when microBIOMETER® can tell you in a week. Should we put this in our soil? Does it need it? An increase in microbes tells you that you have increased their food and therefore increased the food for your plant. You don’t need to do anything more.
Fights climate change through knowledge and awareness
Microbial biomass is the single best indicator of soil health and microBIOMETER® can tell you the level of microbes in your soil. This knowledge enables you to make smart decisions regarding the use of chemical fertilizers. Overuse of these types of fertilizers is bad for the climate, for our food sources, and for the future of our planet. Feed the microbes and they will feed the plants.
IMPORTANT TESTING NOTES:
- The microBIOMETER® app is not yet compatible with the iPhone 14 series, we are working diligently to get those devices up and running for testing.
- Fungal to bacterial ratio data available when testing soil and compost, NOT compost teas or extracts.
