Element’s agricultural soil testing and analysis provide valuable insight into the soil condition that can help to maximize the yield and quality of crops.
Land fertility plays a significant role in the quality and yield of a crop. Knowledge of the availability of nutrients, or the need for their introduction, is critical to commercial producers. Using optimum lime and fertilizer quantities can maximize profits and enhance efficiency for that crop season; all while maintaining good environmental stewardship.
Our team of soil testing specialists supports the agricultural industry with comprehensive soil analysis across a full spectrum of tests. From the determination of nutrient content and soil composition to other characteristics such as acidity and salinity, our experts help you make sound agronomic decisions.
Comprehensive agricultural soil testing services
From our ISO 17025 compliant soil analysis laboratory, our experts provide a complete suite of soil testing services for agriculture, including advice on agricultural sampling regimes and suitable test methods.
Our testing provides you with an understanding of available nutrient content and other soil properties essential for crop production. We can assist in monitoring:
- Macro and micronutrients
- Organic matter
- Soil acidity or alkalinity (pH)
- Soil salinity
- Soil texture
- Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) & Base Saturation (% B.S.)
Knowing the status of plant-available nutrients and other soil chemical factors for crop production is essential for proper fertilizer recommendations and prevent cropping practices that may create an adverse impact on the environment.
