Why soil test? A fertility testing program that monitors nutrients and pH management can help you save money! Soil testing is the only way to determine the available nutrient status in soil or soilless media and the only way you can develop specific fertilizer recommendations. Yield and economic return can be optimized when fertilizer rates accurately address the needs of a crop. Potential soil and water pollution can be minimized when nutrient application is geared to the needs of a particular crop. An effective fertility testing program is one in which every field or greenhouse is properly sampled and tested on a regular basis. This gives you a running inventory of the nutrient levels for each crop,plus specific recommendations as to the kinds and rates of fertilizers to apply for each crop. Recommendations can be based on specific times and methods of application. Reliable soil test results and recommendations depend upon many factors, including; proper soil sampling and sample processing procedures, proper soil analysis techniques and sound fertilizer recommendation guidelines.
