Soil Essentials Forecasta for HOM/Pasture Soils – with Sampling Kit
Soil Essentials is an economy package that gives information on the biomasses of key microbial groups and their overall potential activity. These two types of information compliment each other – the biomasses of the key microbes tell you the status of groups important for important soil processes, such as residue breakdown, nutrient cycling and soil structure maintenance, while their potential activity indicates their overall level of activity and performance under ideal conditions. If you want a package that covers the essentials at a budget price, Soil Essentials is for you.
Soil Essentials Forecasta for HOM/Pasture Soils is specifically designed for samples from high organic matter (HOM) or pasture soils where no plants are currently being grown (e.g., pre-plant). If plants are currently being grown opt for the non-Forecasta versions of Soil Essentials for HOM/Pasture Soils.
HOM soils are defined here as those with >5% Organic Matter (approximately 3% Total Organic Carbon). If you aren’t certain of the level of Organic Matter in your soil opt for this HOM/Pasture Soils version of Soil Essentials Forecasta.
Comes with a Sampling Kit – Soils and Solids that includes everything you need to take your samples the right way and get them to the lab in the best condition, including return express freight to the lab.
