Soil Testing is the foremost part for maximum yields. The Indian agricultural sector plays a major role in India’s growth. Agricultural sector is the potential contributor to country’s success for multiple reasons such as direct consumption in domestic markets, providing raw material to many agriculture based industries and the export of the same. In the realm of agriculture, good quality crop growth relies on the health and nutrient content of the soil. Soil is the foundation of crops, so to achieve the maximum yields, farmers must consider the importance of soil testing.
Significance of Soil Testing in Agricultural Sector:
Soil Testing analyzes the composition and nutrient contents of the soil such as pH, nutrient levels, organic matter count and other important factors. After having knowledge of soil’s quality farmers can make informed decisions about crop selection and nutrients management. There are three primary nutrient presents in soil such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium and each one plays different role during the plant growth. But it is essential to maintain the right amount of nutrients for the optimal crop growth results.
Soil testing helps farmers strategize according to the present amount of nutrients in the soil. Furthermore helps management to promote environment sustainability by not overusing fertilizers.
Testing help farmers to collect the right data and providing insight into soil and crop health, fertilisation, feed value and food safety. ITC Labs as a leading laboratory in the agricultural sector provides innovative analyses and clear, case-specific advice, to help you manage your production process.
After sample collection from the various areas of the field, the nutrient levels such as Sodium, Potassium, Organic Matter, Chloride, Sulphate, pH and other necessary factors are measured by the lab experts. Based on the laboratory results, farmers can make informed choices for the type of crop growth and other required adjustments.
Services provided by ITC Labs:
At ITC Labs we do the complete analysis of pesticides and formulations as per BIS specifications for licensing and complete analysis of Fertilizers as per FCO act. ITC Labs, with an experience of over 30 years in the testing industry provides innovative solutions to current agricultural needs.
Soil testing is a fundamental key for agricultural production. By knowing the quality of nutrients and pH level present in soil, farmers can make better choices of crop growth and can protect the environment. As the climate is changing, soil testing is a very good practice to become responsible towards nature and environment and for population.
