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.

CARBON

Low carbon levels inhibit soil health, fertility, structure and nutrient exchange. As the fastest drying continent, our Western Australian soils require specialised products that continually drive the biological, chemical and physical responses. See the benefits of introducing a ‘living form’ of stable soil carbon to your system.

MINERALS​

Discover the key to unlocking your soil antagonisms, reduce the use of mineral fertilisers and chemicals and optimising the growth potential of your crops and plants. Learn and understand the specific requirements for your application.

BIOLOGY​

Limited carbon sources within the soil profile have a detrimental effect on aerobic soil microbiology populations. Aim for a diverse range of live biology in your soil and provide a sustainable food source.

Soil testing allows us to verify macro and micro nutrients.

Macro Nutrients

  • N - Nitrogen
  • P - Phosphorus
  • K - Potassium
  • Ca - Calcium
  • Mg - Magnesium
  • S - Sulfur

Micro Nutrients

  • Fe - Iron
  • Mn - Manganese
  • Cu - Copper
  • Zn - Zinc
  • B - Boron
  • Mo - Molybdenum
  • Co - Cobalt

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