pH Mapping

from £4 per hectare

 

Sampled on a modified grid system by pin pointing each sample taken with GPS. The sample is measured in our laboratory in a soil/water suspension and this value is located on a map to its position in the field.

 

The optimum availability of most plant nutrients in soil occurs over a small range of soil pH values. Maintaining the optimum level in the topsoil in all parts of the field is important to achieve optimum yields and consistent quality, in both arable and grassland enterprises.

 

Spread lime only where it is needed by detailing exactly where acidity problems are, their extent and severity. This service includes sampling, analysis, reporting and lime files compatible with all variable lime spreaders.
