Advanced Soil Testing
A range of nutrients and other important fertility indicators are measured to assist in determining the soil health or nutrient status. A very useful calculation is the Mehlich Phosphorus Saturation Ratio (M-3 PSR). This calculation is a combination of the agronomic M3-P soil test and the environmental aspects of a soil P saturation test. The M3-PSR is reportedly better at determining soils susceptible to P losses through leaching. For a full explanation of the M3-PSR download the Mehlich Phosphorus Saturation Ratio flyer.
Another useful measurement is the lime requirement. Download the Lime Requirement Calculation flyer to find out more about liming materials and how much lime to apply.
