About Soil Laboratory

As an information technology organization, our goal is to bring data and information back to the farm for profit-making decisions. Determining the nutrient content of your soil will provide you with the background information necessary to determine what crops will thrive best and the amendments needed to optimize growth. Follow this with a manure analysis to determine the nutrients that you can readily supply from the farm and minimize your purchased fertilizer costs. As a final test, plant tissue analyses can be used as a diagnostic tool to identify nutrient excesses or deficiencies.
