Soil Analysis

Routine sampling and testing of soil will provide information needed to manage the overall health, nutritional requirements of crops and determining fertilizer requirements.

Our agricultural laboratory has extensive experience with testing of a variety of agricultural materials including soil, leaves and fruit, fertilizer, irrigation water, compost and pesticides.

All testing is carried out in-line with national and international standards and we routinely participate in all of the AgriLASA proficiency testing schemes.

Our soil testing services include: –

  • Standard Package (pH, EC, P (Bray I), Na, K, Ca, Mg, Density, Acidity, Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC))
  • Size Analysis (Clay, Silt and Sand, Stone Fraction)
  • Moisture and Ash Content
  • Individual Analytes – Metal and other elements (e.g. S, C, Cd, Cr, Hg, Pb, As, N, P by Olsen, Mehlich, Citric Acid Extraction), Ions (e.g. nitrate, nitrite, chloride), organic matter
  • All extraction methods available (e.g. Mehlich-3, DTPA, Citric Acid, Water etc)

It is extremely important to sample soil correctly to ensure that interpretations from the chemical data are reliable. Sci-Ba boasts a team of expert scientists that can assist you in sampling, understanding and interpreting the laboratory results.
