Soil Health & Management

Soil is a complex material, home to many animals, plants, insects and bacteria; its structure should support life and its organic content should promote plant growth. Harvesting plants depletes the organic content of the soil, the addition of additives to promote growth also adds toxic elements to the soil. These tests are designed to help us manage the land effectively for the benefit of everyone.
