Soil & Leaf Testing

Soil & Leaf Testing

AgSolutions will assist you to design a simple to follow soil management plan to suit the specific needs of your soil, and subsequently your crops / livestock. Whether you follow conventional or organic farming practices, our programs are designed to restore soil fertility, helping to maximise yield and productivity. Ultimately reducing your time and money spent.  AgSolutions recommends a program of remineralisation, mulching and crop rotation including a legume. Soil aeration is recommended where necessary and practical. Repeat applications of NatraMin are vital to restore mineral elements to your soil. As soil fertility improves, water-soluble fertiliser can often be reduced.


To accurately assess your soil’s requirements, AgSolutions can arrange a full soil, pH, conductivity, salinity and leaf testing. Consideration of your current practices and goals, as well as an assessment of your soil test results will be used to develop a soil management strategy. If you already have a recent soil test, we can provide another opinion for you.

Soil and Leaf Sampling

Careful sampling is required to ensure accurate analysis which affects the quality of the programs we provide our clients. We have developed sampling procedures which may be carried out by the farmer, or the AgSolutions Field Advisor.  For further information on our Soil Management Programs, please contact us at

What farmers have experienced…

Milking the returns from your soil!

For the past 5 years, Warwick dairy farmer, Bill Stewart, has soil tested under the advice of AgSolutions’ Field Advisor Paul Pritchard and Olsens Produce (Landmark) Agronomist, Ian Wallace for his fertiliser budget and programs to improve yields, soil and crop health.

“Soil testing and having a program provides us with direction and facts to base our decisions on,” said Bill.
