Agricultural Outfits
Model STH-4, STH-5, STH-7, and STH-14
Advanced Agricultural Soil Testing Outfits

The Model STH Combination Soil Outfits have offered simplified methods for determination of available nutrients found in agricultural soils for over forty years.

Since the original introduction of the STH series, based on Morgan soil test methods, reagent systems have been updated constantly with new advancements in modern chemistry. A series of rapid, accurate chemical tests use standardized regents to produce color reactions measured against laminated color charts.

All STH outfits are furnished in lightweight carrying cases with components securely mounted in removable foam trays. This format provides flexibility for the in-house specialist who also want to make quick problem determinations in the field.

Colormetric test methods are used for most test factors. Test for calcium, sulfate and chlorides are based on turbidity measurements. Potassium analysis also employs a turbidity measurement, using a unique reading device designed LaMotte laboratories to read directly in pounds per acre. A single extraction procedure, using Morgan Universal Extraction Solution, provides to liquid soil extract for all the nutrient tests with the exception of chloride, which is extracted with demineralized water. The Humus Screening Test, performed on a soil sample-demineralized water suspension, employs five color standards for rapid measurement of humus content of the soil.

Soil pH is determined colorimetrically, using a series of pH indicators and color charts covering the range of pH 3.8 to 9.6. The STH outfits also include simplified procedures for screening nitrates, phosphorus, and potassium in plan tissues. Complete reagent refill packages are available for each STH outfit.

Each kit includes complete instructions, a soil management handbook and a pad of soil analysis report forms. The LaMotte Soil Handbook contains general information on interpretation of test results for determination of lime and fertilizer requirements.

Available in four models. See charts.
