|Why Test Your Soil?||Data in the Soil Report|
Nutrient Deficiencies are Common
Conventional N-P-K fertilizers only supply the three major nutrients. They don't correct problems with other nutrients or with the soil pH.
Healthier Plants Produce Better Results
Plants growing in fertile soil tend to be healthier and more resistant to disease, and they tend to be more productive.
Get to the Root of a Problem
Different nutrient deficiency symptoms in plants can appear similar. Soil testing eliminates the guesswork.
Apply only the fertilizer you need, and don't spend money on fertilizer you don't need.
Soil Levels of Ten Nutrients
If any of the primary, secondary or micro-nutrients are deficient, the report will include fertilizer recommendations.
Soil pH and Lime Recommendations
If your soil is too acidic for your garden or lawn, the report will recommend how much lime to add to your soil.
Organic Matter Content
If you have been adding organic matter to your soil or are considering doing so, you may want to check on the current status.
