|Soil is analysed to evaluate certain core characteristics that determine it’s suitability as a growth medium; does it contain all essential nutrients needed in plant growth? Are available nutrients in optimal proportions? What is it’s water-retention ability? Does it have the right texture and consistency? What of chemicals, toxins and other pollutants? The answers to these questions yield valuable insights into what factors need to be addressed to ensure that your land can support crops of your choice profitably and sustainably.
||Our recommendations for a specific plan of fertilizer amendments are tailored to your expressed short or long term goals, and take into account the previous history of crops and fertilizers at the location, farming conditions in the area, your type of operation (for instance organic or conventional), fertilizer preferences, and other factors, as supplied by the grower, in addition to the condition of the soil. Where appropriate the recommendations will include additional notes on materials to be used, application method and timing.
||We undertake to create unique, tailor-made fertilizer blends which, applied correctly can restore your soil to previous levels of fertility in all aspects; texture, compaction water retention, macro and micro-nutrients as well as presence of organic matter. Your unique soil management plan may include both organic and inorganic additives, which, if applied in the prescribed quantities in the correct intervals, can go a long way toward creating a healthy soil structure that can support your crop of choice to optimize yields.
