Soil testing and collecting soil samples is what we do everyday.
We can advise on the best analysis for your soil be it arable, grass or equestrian land. It is recommended that soil nutrient levels are checked every 3 to 4 years, to make sure the soil performs to it’s maximum potential.
A standard soil analysis measures Phosphorus, Potassium, Magnesium and pH. For arable land this is the most common analysis that we sample for. However, sometimes more detailed nutrient data is required to try and unlock reasons for poor yields.
Our soil samples are sent to a laboratory using the very latest instrumentation, techniques and quality control procedures. Qualified teams provide the most rapid, accurate and impartial service available operating within the ISO 9001 and UKAS 17025 certifications.
