Soil Chemical Testing

An understanding of a soils chemical properties or chemical fertility is important as it controls:

  • soil stability
  • plant root growth and exploration
  • nutrient availability
  • metal and metalloid toxicity
  • particle / mineral surface charge
  • solute adsorption and transport

SWA can undertake the following soil chemical testing:

  • pH
  • Electrical Conductivity (EC)
  • pH Buffering Capacity
  • Gypsum / Lime Requirement
  • Total Acidity / Alkalinity
  • Organic Carbon and Matter Content
  • Carbonate, Gypsum and Sulphate Content
