The following service is provided by Analytical Chemistry, an ISO 17025 accredited Laboratory using state of the art equipment and highly skilled personnel.
The laboratory acts as a nerve centre for soil nutrient management as it offers services for the determination of plant available nutrients for specific lime and fertilizer recommendations. Soil tests measure available nutrients in the soil and serve as the best guide to profitable use of commercial liming and fertilizing materials. Without a sound soil testing program, crop yield potential can be reduced and low crop productivity can occur due to improper liming and fertilization. Internationally accepted extraction methods are employed for the determination of both micronutrients and macronutrients in the soil. Instruments employed include AAS, UV-Vis Spectrometers, pH meters and EC meters.
