Did you know that over the last 70 years, the level of vitamins and nutrients in food has drastically decreased? (Source: FAO) Healthy soils are the basis to produce sufficient, safe, and nutritious food. Thus, as agriculture productivity depends on the farmland quality, soil tests should be performed on a regular basis. Soil test gives an analysis of the physical and chemical parameters.
Here are 4 reasons why you need to test your soil.
a. To maximize the efficiency of nutrients and water use and improve agricultural productivity.
b. To plan subsequent crop treatment based on past field activities and productivity.
c. Avoid soil degradation as it is a threat to every farmer.
d. Fertile soils contribute to food security, good yields for farmers and economic development.
