The comprehensive soil, plant and water testing service carried out by AgAssist is done using ASPAC and NATA laboratories with all sample locations geo-referenced for accurately monitoring nutrient levels over time.
The advice provided by AgAssist is based on published soil and plant science research to economically maximise potential crop and pasture yields whilst minimising any risks of nutrient losses to the environment.
All recommendations are carried out by a Fertcare C accredited adviser using a Fertcare accredited decision support system.
The soil testing service caters for pasture, broad acre and horticultural crops with subsoil chemical and physical tests carried out when required using a deep soil testing probe.
For new horticultural developments, AgAssist offers a comprehensive soil mapping service which can be used for block layout, drainage design and calculating capital lime and phosphorus requirements.
The service caters from both conventional and organically accredited farming systems.
