The importance of soil is well known to any farming or growing professional. The right soil, filled with the right nutrients and chemical composition, can be the difference between a large, high quality crop yield and an inferior crop yield.
Soil must be therefore regularly be tested in order to ensure that the composition of soil is rich with nutrients and excessive amounts of a particular element are not present. By regularly testing the soil maximum productivity can be ensured at all times and steps can be taken to enrich the soil before and during crop implementation.
Our soil testing kits and soil testers are perfect for this purpose. They work by analysing a soil sample via the use of reagent/buffer tablets to obtain a reading and can be used to perform laboratory grade soil composition testing while out in the field.
The testers vary greatly in terms of capability but we stock equipment suitable for testing soil pH, lime requirements, nitrate, phosphate, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, aluminium, ammonia nitrogen, chloride, copper, iron, manganese, sulphate and can also be used to measure overall soil conductivity.
