A soil analysis is a must for a farmer to know his individual plot before planting. Thanks to this, the farmer will earn more income by spending less and will not face problems such as giving more or less fertilizer to his land. In addition, soil analysis is an important factor in agriculture for several reasons:
- Nutrient management: Soil analysis provides information about the nutrients present in the soil, which is important for determining the fertilizer needs of crops. By understanding the nutrient status of the soil, farmers can apply fertilizers more precisely and avoid over-application, which can lead to environmental problems and increase production costs.
- Soil health: Soil analysis can provide information about the physical and chemical properties of the soil, including its pH, organic matter content, and texture. This information is important for understanding the overall health and productivity of the soil, as well as identifying any potential soil health problems such as nutrient deficiencies or soil compaction.
- Yield potential: Soil analysis can also provide information about the potential yield of a crop, based on the nutrient and physical properties of the soil. By understanding the yield potential of the soil, farmers can make more informed decisions about crop selection and management practices.
- Environmental protection: Soil analysis can help farmers to avoid over-application of fertilizers and other soil amendments, which can lead to environmental problems such as nutrient runoff and soil degradation.
- Cost savings: By understanding the nutrient and physical properties of the soil, farmers can optimize their use of fertilizers and other inputs, which can help reduce production costs and improve profitability.
There are 3 packages available for soil analysis. Packages differ from each other in the number of analyzed macro and micronutrients. The packages are as follows:
- Package 1 - 35 AZN
Properties: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, pH, EC.
- Package 2 - 55 AZN
Properties: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Organic Matter, pH, EC, Salt, Lime, Texture.
- Package 2 - 105 AZN
Properties: Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium, Organic Matter, Saturation, pH, EC, Salt, Lime, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Zinc, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium.
