Soil & Fertilizer

The quality of soil is important to the agricultural sector, particularly to estimate the kind and amount of soil nutrients available to plants. With the content of nutrients in the soil obtained by chemical analysis, it is able to determine the amount and type of fertilizer required to achieve high and quality yields.

The three major compounds in the fertilizer such as Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P), and Potassium (K) are often the concern of many planters in order to help their plants to grow well. However, elements such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur, magnesium, copper, cobalt, sodium, boron, molybdenum, and zinc are just as important for plant development.

Allied Chemists analysis team is qualified to perform soil and fertilizer analysis according to national quality standards to meet your requirement in research studies, nutrient management (agriculture) and also environmental baseline studies.
