Animal feed & forage testing
Testing animal feeds and forage allows you to evaluate the feeds and ensure profitable, well-balanced rations which in turn help to avoid nutritional disorders.
Crop testing at this early stage can prove to be a cost effective management tool, indicating what if any, nutrient sprays are required.
Over fertilising wastes money and can cause environmental problems, while under fertilising can cause loss of yield. Economic returns from fertilisers can only be achieved by taking into account the soil's natural fertilising potential.
Organic waste analysis
By analysing farm waste for nutrients, it ensures maximum savings on limiting additional fertilisers needed and you're reducing pollution by keeping excess organic wastes under control.
