Soil Testing

What is soil testing?

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.

How can soil testing improve soil health?

Laboratory tests will allow us to verify if the soil samples lack important nutrients such as nitrogen phosphorus and potassium.

How long will it take for my soil to be tested?

Estimated 10-30 days.

Soil testing allows us to verify major, secondary and minor nutrients.

Major Nutrients

  • Nitrogen
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium

Secondary Nutrients

  • Sulfur
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium

Minor Nutrients

  • Iron
  • Manganese
  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Boron
  • Molybednum
  • Chlorine

Soil testing also allows us to find and locate contaminants they may be present in the soil.
