Soil testing

 
There are several nutrients in the soil that are essential for plants to grow. Soil tests evaluate the nutrient content of a soil and help determine the amount and kind of fertilizer / manure to be added. Without a soil-testing programme, crop yields can get drastically reduced.

The laboratory at CPREEC analyses soils from residential areas as well as agricultural fields. The following parameters are analyzed:
 

Colour

Nitrogen

Iron

Texture class (Sand, Silt or Clay)

Phosphorous

Manganese

Bulk Density

Potassium

Molybdenum

Water holding capacity

Sodium

Zinc

pH

Magnesium

Carbonate

Conductivity

Calcium

C.E.C

C:N Ratio

Boron

Chloride

Organic Carbon

Copper

Moisture content
