Testing and correcting pH is one of the most important parts of growing in soil, and often even more significant in hydroponic systems. pH has a significant impact on nutrient availability, nutrient uptake rate, bacterial and fungal growth, nutrient leaching in soil and plant enzyme activity to name only a few.
pH (potential of hydrogen) is a numeric scale used to specify the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution. Pure water is neutral, at pH 7, being neither an acid nor a base. Solutions with a pH less than 7 are acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic.
Many growers are misinformed on the proper care and maintenance of their pH meters. They end up wasting money replacing meters that could have lasted for years, wasting money on nutrients that are not being taken up by the plants, and watching their crops slowly fail despite doing everything right because of inaccurate pH readings.
How do pH meters work and how you can make them last as long as possible? Join us and Hanna pH to learn exactly how to keep a pH meter running at peak performance and the simple steps to save hundreds of dollars on equipment and heartbreak from lost crops.
