The fertometer measures the level of nutrients in the soil of plants
About fertilizing potted plants and plants in vegetable gardens
During growth season both potted plants and plants in your vegetable garden need enough nutrients to grow, to flower and to crop well. There is a limited amount of nutrients in the soil, therefore it’s important to measure the level of nutrients and to fertilise in time if necessary.
Measure the level of nutrients in the soil of potted plants and/or vegetable gardens
The fertometer measures the level of nutrients in the soil of your potted plants and your vegetable garden and uses a light to indicate feeding requirements.
EC (Electrical Conductivity): the fertometer is an EC-meter and provides fertilizing advice
The fertometer uses the process of electrolysis and is also referred to as an EC-meter (Electrical Conductivity) in technical terms. It works on the same principles as a plant. Like the roots of a plant, it “absorbs” nutrients from the soil. By measuring the quantity of the absorbed substances in the soil, it can be determined whether there are sufficient nutrients left. The colour of the light will show you directly the feeding condition of the soil and will enable you to act directly if necessary.
