Why Soil Testing?
Crop yield improvement is a combined phenomenon of expression of genetic potential of a particular seed or variety and its healthy nurturing conditions. If the genetic potential is weak, even a good nurturing condition cannot produce desired yields and vice versa. Hence, it is imperative to take necessary steps to maintain the soil health to help the seed / plant express its fullest potential. The balanced plant nutrition calls for the accurate and quality analytical services for soil fertility assessment encompassing the major, secondary and micronutrients and relevant phyto-chemical parameters.
The soil fertility based nutrient management would not only help the farmers provide balanced nutrition to the plants but also minimize the indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizers, and reduce the environmental pollution. Once the desired soil fertility level is reached, the cost of cultivation can also be brought down through optimal nutrient management leading to increase in profit for the farmers.
