    Need some help. Which one is worth the money? Where do I purchase it?

    Depends on what your looking for.

    There are testers available that only test the PH level of the soil and then there are testers that will test for PH, N, P, and K.

    The testers can range from about $25 up to several thousand dollars depending on the quality of the device.

    You can also take a soil sample and send it to your local agriculture division and let them do a complete soil analysis. Their results will give you allot more infromation about the soil than anything you will be able to get from a testing kit on your own. Seems like those generally run around $40 but i may be way off on the price.
