When making compost it is very important to know the compost's temperature. A high quality REOTEMP compost thermometer from Groundgrocer.com will enable you to monitor the core temperature of your compost pile accurately and easily.
If the compost is too hot, it will destroy beneficial microorganisms that are essential to the proper conversion of your compost materials into humus. If the compost temperature is too cold microbial activity will be reduced and weed seeds and any pathogens are not destroyed. In such cases compost can take a very long time to mature. So be sure! Purchase high quality compost thermometer equipment and accessories all right here at Groundgrocer. We only supply the highest quality compost thermometer's available on the market.

New customer. So far so good. Very happy. This thermometer is sturdy enough to probe the insides of our compost stacks & haybales. Quick & efficient. Really like the design with the clear analog dial & that it's battery free. My only comment would be to be patient & leave it in there for a few minutes to let the dial fine-tune & settle on the exact temperature. Overall, a really helpful tool for tracking how bacteria & fungus is getting on deep inside our compost piles. (Before this I buried thermometers in compost piles, or used a temp probe on the end of a flexible wire. That was never any good.) This one's just so cool - kids say it looks like a sword.
Easy to read - robust constructions
I've tried a few other thin stemmed brands (they always bend or break) and these reotemp thermometers are the best in Australia. I use a 91cm and I find it well built and sturdy. The probe handle is a must.
Thanks lynton for bringing these great Compost thermometers into Australia. Ive been working with them for 5 years and have found them to be accurate with readings , touch and durable.. Ive used them in the home garden/composting environment, community garden level through to tough commercial composting operation scale. they always provide good service. Cheers and keep up the good work
I can highly recommend these longer compost thermometers. I use three 153cm heavy duty models with the probe gaurd handles (essential I would say - to protect the dial) for my farm-based commercial windrow operation.
well made and built to last
