Soil, Crop and Pasture Nutrition

Comprehensive Program to Restore Soil Fertility

Our team can arrange complete soil, pH, conductivity, salinity, sap and dry tissue (leaf) testing, providing a valuable business tool that helps to identify underlying issues affecting soil fertility and subsequently, crop quality and productivity.

A soil test provides valuable insights into nutrient imbalances and deficiencies within the soil, and helps to identify the cause of structural and biological problems. Understanding these issues can allow us to develop a management program focusing on corrective practices to restore and rebuild the biological, nutritional and structural aspects of soil fertility.

About Our Soil Testing Service

A soil test is the first step in our sustainable program approach to regenerative farming. Soil test provides the information required to develop a tailored management program focusing on rebalancing nutritional deficiencies, repairing soil structural issues, and improving biological activity in the soil.

Our testing services includes:

  1. Complete soil analysis
  2. Leaf and sap tests

We do not conduct soil testing for building sites; we recommend contacting the local council for assistance in this matter.

Do already have a soil test?
Great! Based on a previous soil test, one of our Field Advisors can assess the results and provide advice free of charge.

How to take a Soil Test

The accuracy of a soil test is important. To ensure that the soil sample quality is maintained, we have developed some easy-to-follow sampling procedures. This video outlines the best procedure in conducting, collecting and handling a soil sample.

Take the guess work out of your soil and pasture management

The implementation of a soil and pasture management program can positively impact the health of your pasture and livestock, providing long term sustainability and profitability for your property. 

Understanding soil and nutrient relationships that impact on nutrient uptake into the plant or pasture being grazed, along with knowledge of soil structure and biology on this system is pivotal to successful pasture management.

What Our Customers Say

AgSolutions assessed our soil management program and we now have more direction with where we are going. Since using NatraMin in our program, our soil test results are more balanced, and our Phosphorus levels have increased and now range from 65 to 120ppm. Soil test results confirm the improvements we see in our soil and pasture. We don’t have those huge deficiencies showing up and we are now simply fine-tuning our program.

– Peter Weatherstone, Grafton NSW

Soil testing and having a program provides us with direction and facts to base our decisions on. NatraMin has been broadcast annually on our cultivation at 300-500kg/ha and this has certainly helped both our heavy and lighter soils. We’re growing better crops and our seed strike at planting has definitely improved. Fine-tuning our inputs has reduced the amount of Urea required and we’ve also seen improvements in our soil structure. The bottom line is that quality nutrition into our soil equals quality nutrition for our crops and stock.

– Bill Stewart, Warwick QLD

It has now been 6 years since we’ve used Super or Lime. We’re watching our soil tests and pH and we are more than happy with how things are performing. I’m aware that repeated use of Lime can become a problem because excess Calcium can tie up other nutrients. What I do appreciate is that Roger explains the soil tests to me and in addition to recommending NatraMin, he provides advice on any other products that are required. After 12 months, I understood the program that Roger had put together which included specific advice on pasture and soil management.

– Kevin Sinclair, NSW

Cloddy or crusting soil?

Invest in your soil structure prior to planting

When planting, the main focus is often on providing adequate NPK for the crop, however soil structure is also an important consideration because it can have a huge influence on crop performance. Poor soil structure can limit seed germination, inhibit root development and plant growth, and restrict water infiltration, often resulting in lower yield crops… subsequently leading to a poor return on investment for the $$$ spent for seed and fertiliser.

Are your Sodium, Magnesium, or Chloride levels high? Is your soil pH over 7.0? Do your soils crust, collapse when wet, or become cloddy when cultivated? You will already be aware of these problems but do you know what action steps to take to improve them?
