Soil Testing

Lets help you manage your soil health for optimal yield.

Manage your soil health

This is an essential part of profitable farm management for all field crops. Based on the soil fertility problems identified in the soil test, we recommend a soil health correction program and a crop specific fertilizer program, meaning farmers are always investing wisely by applying the right inputs, at the right quantity, to increase yields and profitability.

Achieving the correct balance of soil nutrients is the best investment a farmer can make. A well balanced, highly mineralized soil will result in improved soil biological activity meaning less disease and pest pressure and lower requirement for fertilizer inputs – in short, high yielding healthy crops with less inputs.

To put this in context, barley farming in Kenya produces an average yield of somewhere between 2.5 and 3.0 t/ha. So thanks to the Agventure Centre of Excellence and CropNuts Trials Networks, we take a look at how this was achieved, and what lessons can be put into practice on your farm.
