Standard Soil Balance Analysis/strong>

The Standard soil test analyses Ph, EC, TSS, T. Organic Matter, T. Organic Carbon, exchangeable cations (Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, and Hydrogen), Cation Exchange Capacity, Adjusted Hydrogen, Adjusted CEC, Cation percentages (of Adj. CEC) and available major and trace nutrients, making it valuable for situations where a once-a-year soil test forms the basis for soil management and fertiliser inputs of the following 12 months, It also has an extensive range of optional tests available, making it very flexible and adaptable to a wide range of situations. You can also specific up to three different land uses for each sample at no extra cost. The report then includes desirable levels and recommendations for each specified land use.

Complete Soil Balance Analysis

This test package represents the sum of over 50 years research by SWEP’s found and chairman, Te Mihail. The complete soil test covers all three functional components of The Mikhail System – Cations (Structure), Nutrients and Microbiology.

Three sets of recommendations are provided:
  • Cation balance for soil structure*;
    • Gypsum requirements to improve the soil structure, Sulphur and Calcium deficiency
    • Lime requirements to improve soil pH and calcium deficiency.
    • Dolomite requirement for magnesium deficiency and calcium/magnesium ratio
    • Magnesium oxide, magnesite or magnesium carbonate in the case of magnesium deficiency only
  • Soil nutrient requirements (elemental figures for major and trace elements kg/ha) relative to the specified land use/s; adjusted CEC, irrigation or annual average rainfall amount, leaching requirement, gypsum and lime requirement.
  • Relative and recommended proportions of five key indicator groups (Lactic Acid Bacteria, Fungi, Yeast, Actino-bacteria & Photosynthetic Bacteria) with the total active bacteria, and appropriate bioactive materials to correct and manage their balance.
    • Biological stimulants – kelp, molasses, worm leachate, fish emulsions, humate
  • Cation Balance Analysis This test determines how to correct the balance of exchangeable cations relative to the adjusted cations exchange capacity, through the application of soil ameliorants such as lime, dolomite, or gypsum. Requirements are determined according to soil exchangeable calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and hydrogen cations, as a percentage of adjusted CEC. Included in the ‘Standard and Complete Soil Balance’ analyses, or available as a stand alone “GL-1” test for situations like sub-soil testing, land reclamation projects and soil audits.
