Soil testing services
Soil is the basis for human survival. Soil testing is important for several reasons: to optimize crop production,to protect the environment from contamination by runoff and leaching of excess fertilizers, to aid in the diagnosis of plant culture problems, to improve the nutritional balance of the growing media and to save money and conserve energy by applying only the amount of fertilizer needed. Soil analysis is a valuable tool for your farm as it determines the inputs required for efficient and economic production. A proper soil test will help ensure the application of enough fertilizer to meet the requirements of the crop while taking advantage of the nutrients already present in the soil. It will also allow you to determine lime requirements and can be used to diagnose problem areas. It is very important that your sampling technique is correct as the results are only as good as the sample you take. Amplicon BioLabs soil testing services and agriculture soil testing are a requirement for farms that must complete a nutrient management plan.
To find out what you need to do to improve your soil's quality, you should know each of the following attributes of the soil:

Current pH levels of your soil

Fertility levels of the principal nutrients

Type and quantity of lime your soil needs

Nutrients need to be added to your soil as fertilizer

Amount of fertilizer your crop and soil needs

Amplicon BioLabs is capable of carrying out the complete analysis of soil, following categories of elements are normally determined:

N, P, K (Major nutrients)

Ca, Mg, S (Secondary nutrients)

Zn, Fe, Cu, Mn, B, Mo, Cl (Micro nutrients)

Besides these nutrients soil are also analyzed for following properties:



Organic carbon
