Free Soil Testing - Planning for Recovery

Support for testing fully subscribed

In response to the floods and rainfall, North Coast Local Land Services offered up to 2 free soil tests per farmer to help plan for Spring.

The program has helped 186 farmers with 370 soil and 132 water tests.

Flooding and high rainfall can alter soil fertility and plant available nutrients through erosion/runoff, waterlogging, leaching and sediment deposition.

Testing provides a snapshot of the current state of soil fertility, including any constraints that may need management. Knowing your soil fertility and any limitations to production can help you make decisions and discover potential savings.

For more information on soils keep an eye out for upcoming events.
