SOIL TEST ANALYSIS

In agriculture, a soil test commonly refers to the analysis of a soil sample to determine nutrient content, composition, and other characteristics such as the acidity or pH level. … Composite sampling can be performed by combining soil from several locations prior to analysis.

The primary goal of soil testing is to inform efficient and effective resource management. Soil testing is the most accurate way to determine lime and nutrient needs. Soil testing is also useful for identifying contaminated sites (e.g., elevated levels of lead).

It is important to recognize that the values obtained when a soil sample is analyzed are of little use as raw analytical data. In order to make use of the values in predicting nutrient needs, the test must be calibrated by conducting nutrient response research, under local conditions with representative soils ranging from deficient to adequate for each nutrient of concern.

At FarmBoy, we have experts whose primary assignment is to determine the best soil with all the important nutrients like phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, aluminium, lead, and other important nutrients, for the best results in agricultural businesses to yield more profits. They also check for the soil PH and acidity, using our top notch equipment.
