Soil testing is an excellent measure of soil fertility. With a representative soil sample and an accurate soil test, sound fertilizer recommendations can help gardeners and growers improve plant quality and productivity. Soil testing takes the guesswork out of fertilization and is extremely cost effective. It not only eliminates the waste of money spent on unnecessary fertilizers, but also eliminates over-usage of fertilizers, hence protecting the environment.
