    Does any one like the new hand helds or Do you stick with the old fashing testing kits??
    Or do you take a soil sample to the local County Extension office??

    There are usually a number of different testing options, but do it yourself kits are not one of them. They are too inaccurate.

    Check with your local extension office, university, or independant testing lab.

    BTW, I pay $7 for a full test at my local university, less than most do it yourself kits.
