Soil Testing Laboratory
There are several initiatives in the development phase that can create sustainable impact on the levelihood of underprivileged. We are actively seeking resources and funding for these intiatives to reach the development targets.
Soil testing is the base for management decisions about fertilizer requirements. It involves the estimation and evaluation of the available nutrient status and acidic reaction of a sample of soil.
After testing, a fertility map is prepared where the available nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium is marked as low, medium or high. Areas of sufficient and insufficient nutrients are marked out and nutritional requirements are determined. Fertilizers such as NPK, lime or gypsum are recommended to improve soil fertility.
