Understanding the current state of your soil is the first step to improved health and greater profitability.
Converte has teamed with leading independent laboratories to provide a soil health check based on the very latest advances in soil and plant science.
Fertilizer costs are at a 12 year high and supply shortages are impacting farmers across the country. Now is the time to take advantage of soil testing to ensure that soils are optimally balanced to maximise nutrient availability and cycling. A good soil chemistry test is really worth its weight in gold and can guide soil and fertiliser management for the season ahead.
Converte uses a random sampling methodology sampling 12-16 points in a paddock area of 5-10 ha, sampling to a depth of 30cm and mixing the soil to provide a composite sample of approximately 300g of soil. Provided you pick a representative area of the paddock this technique works well.
We send our soil samples to independent laboratories for a range of chemical parameters under an Albrecht / Reams soil balancing test. Our focus is primarily on addressing key imbalances that will improve nutrient and fertiliser efficiency.
To claim your soil test, click on the button below & complete your details for our team to send you the Soil test kit & payment invoice.
The kit explains how to take your soil test and package the sample for sending to the laboratory. The results will take approximately 2 weeks post sample receipt. Additional soil tests can be added at a cost of $165 / test.
You will be required to pay for return postage to the laboratory. We will then email you your results together with an interpretive letter report.
