Hanna instruments recently introduced their Halo Direct Stick
soil pH meter (HI12922). It utilizes a Bluetooth wireless probe that
works in concert with a free app that can be downloaded to a
smartphone. Hanna also has a handheld meter with a wired probe
(HI99121) with on-screen prompts during operation and calibration.
Direct-stick soil pH meters other than those mentioned may also
be suitable for this use.

Keys to success with direct-stick soil pH meters:
 •	 Take many samples and average the results. A larger sample

    size helps to account for the natural variability that occurs
    within a given crop.

 •	 Calibrate often! Even the best meters require frequent
    calibration. Some meters even remind you when calibration
    is needed.

 •	 Clean the probe often in accordance with the owner’s manual.
    Improper cleaning can shorten the life of the probe and provide
    erroneous readings.

 •	 Keep the probe hydrated in the recommended
    storage solution.
