Demeter Ghana Ltd’s mobile soil testing lab can presisely test your soil for the following parameteres:
Soil pH | Lime Requirement | Nitrate | Nitrogen | Phosphate | Phosphorus | Potassium | Magnesium | Calcium | Conductivity | Salinity | Aluminium | Chlorine | Copper | Iron | Manganese | Sulphur
Due to year on year rising fertiliser costs reducing his profits, Samuel engaged a Demeter agronomist to take soil samples from his 5 acre maize farm for analysis. The results showed sufficient levels of Nitrogen with soil acidity limiting nutrient uptake. Sulphur deficiency was also identified. Demeter recommended Calciprill to correct Samuel's soil pH, and Polysulphate for a source of S and K. With the right information, Samuel was able to save money on inputs whilst boosting his yield.
“I'm happy to learn about soil analysis and how it can tell me the best fertilisers to use. The recommendations from the agronomist help me improve my yields.”
Ensuring your soil is a healthy and productive medium for your crops is amongst the most important things you can do as a farmer. Without having fertile soils, crops will not attain their maximum yield potential. And if you are lucky enough to have fertile soils, you should understand this before spending money on fertilisers or other inputs that may not be necessary.
Demeter provides soil testing in state-of-the-art mobile equipment, to give farmers access to the information they need to be profitable. When we test soils, we will give you the results and farm recommendations within 36 hours so you can give your farm the best chances of success and highest yield.
