SOIL TESTING LAB AT VILLAGE LEVEL

Soil test may refer to one or more of a wide variety of soil analyses conducted for one of several possible reasons. Possibly the most widely conducted soil tests are those done to estimate the plant-available concentrations of plant nutrients, in order to determine fertilizer and seed recommendations in agriculture.


Objectives:

    To improve soil quality and profitability of farmers.

    To improve timeliness in analysis of soil samples.

    Provide soil testing facilities to farmers at their door step.

    Employment generation for rural youth.

We are promote soil sampling, testing and fertilizer and seeds recommendation among Farmers, Self Help Groups (SHGs), Farmer Joint Liability Groups, Farmer Cooperative Societies by way of training.

Laboratory tests often check for plant nutrients in three categories:

    Major nutrients: nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K)
    Secondary nutrients: sulfur, calcium, magnesium
    Minor nutrients: iron, manganese, copper, zinc, boron, molybdenum, chlorine
