The importance of soil and nutrient testing can not be underestimated and the degree of sampling can be personalised to each customer. Depending on the crop to be grown or maintained alters the level of testing required.The industry standard for both lime and nutrient testing is to take samples every two acres and then analise these samples for the relavent requirements.
The cost rises proportionally as a greater number of results is requested.
eg. lime or p&k only is the simplest form of testing but requests can be made for calcium,magneseium, potassium, sulphur etc
Below is shown the results obtained from both a lime/P&K test as well as a full spectrum analysis.
