If you are growing field crops, then Cropnuts offers a soil nutrient test that covers all of the macro and micro nutrients. This helps you identify the soil fertility problems on your farm. We also offer a customized recommendation for lime usage and a crop specific fertilizer program, helping you to correct any nutrient imbalances. In addition to a soil nutrient test, we also recommend periodic soil texture and composition analyses as well as Soil Risk and Crop Compatibility Analysis where appropriate.
With this information to hand, our dedicated agronomy team are also available to help you interpret our recommendations and implement them on your farm.
We offer this service to both large scale and small-scale farmers across Africa, helping you to invest wisely and apply the right inputs, wherever you are and however big your farm is.
