Sportsmen interested in planting food plots for deer season need to get a readout on the soil in their area to really understand what it needs to grow the best forage. A quality soil meter will provide all of that information and also tell you what kinds of forage may grow best in your area given the kind of soil you have right now. Having a meter on hand will also allow you to check your soil regularly to ensure that you’re not over fertilizing, which can cause crops to grow too fast. With the right meter, you can get your food plots dialed in just right for hunting season. Here are some key things to look for when choosing a meter for your soil.
