Soil Essentials is an economy package that gives information on the biomasses of key microbial groups and their overall potential activity. If you want a package that covers the essentials at a budget price, Soil Essentials is for you.
Soil Essentials Forecasta is specifically designed for 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. If your samples are from high organic matter (HOM) (>5% OM / >3% TOC) or pasture soils you need Soil Essentials Forecasta for HOM/Pasture Soils. If you aren’t certain of the level of Organic Matter in your soil opt for the 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.
