Soil & Tissue Analysis

Determine a testing program

Along with soil sampling methodology, at The Soil Foundry we also take into consideration lab testing methodology. We believe in testing not only for the traditional macronutrients of N, P, and K, but also micronutrients such as S, Zn< Fe, Mn, Cu, B, Mg, Ca, and key factors including pH, % base saturation, and CECs There are eight primary soil tests conducted for every sample dependent upon the farmer’s priorities.

Additionally, we offer tissue plant testing to check for basic mineral availability – P, K, Mg, Ca, S, Fe, Mn, B, Cu, Zn
