Soil Texture and Composition Analysis

In addition to our soil nutrient testing, we also offer soil texture analysis (sand, silt, clay ratios), soil carbon and CO2 burst tests, which measures the CO2 respiration and is a proxy for the level of biological activity.

In addition to the chemical properties of the soil, knowing the physical structure and biological response of your soils is essential for proper soil management. These fundamental properties influence root formation and aeration and affect nutrient uptake by the plants. Well structured, biologically active soils produce healthy, disease resistant crops which yield better and produce higher quality grains.

As with our soil nutrient testing, our agronomy team is on hand to give advice. In addition to soil tests, we can help you come up with a management plan to help you improve soil structure and increase biological activity.
