Agriculture and Food Soil Fertility Testing
SGS helps you accurately assess and precisely manage soil fertility, reducing both the cost and negative environmental impact of fertilizers yet still improving your crop yields.
Precision farming begins with an accurate assessment of fertility. This is achieved through precise sampling (with GPS), testing, and mapping with geographic information systems (GIS). Using either grid or zone soil sampling, we can tailor this GPS-based service to your operations and test for macronutrients and micronutrients, pH, salinity carbon content and more.
We can deliver a nutrient management plan (NMP) that allows you to:
- Increase precision – bringing the possibility of reduced fertilizer costs
- Increase yield thanks to accurate recommendations for crop management
- Increase environmental protection, through the accurate application of products
To maximize your profits and enhance efficiency while maintaining good environmental stewardship, contact SGS to ask about our soil fertility and nutrient management services.
