Description

Soil sampling to characterize levels of soil fertility is one of the foundations of profitable management. Soil fertility below optimum levels reduces yield potential, while soil fertility above optimum levels results in lost opportunity costs, profits and potential environmental degradation. In site specific fertility management, soil testing is especially important as it is the basis upon which variable rate prescriptions are written.
