Presentation of Results
The results of the analyses are presented in two summary sheets (see images below). Furthermore, a detailed and informative report explains and describes the results (see exemplary analyse link). The laboratory test results are enclosed in a datasheet.
Comprehensive presentation of the analysis results (above: Soil characteristics, below: Plant nutrition)
Summary sheet on “Soil Characteristics“ (Basic Parameters / Sorption Complex)
In the section “Soil Characteristics“, the basic parameters (water balance, pH-values, electrical conductivity, lime and soil organic matter content/-quality) and the sorption complex are described and assessed. Based on that, mineral-organic measures and actions are derived to enhance and/or preserve soil fertility (amelioration measures). The toolbox of measures should be fully implemented in the next 5 to 10 years.
Summary sheet on „Plant Nutrition“
In the section “Plant Nutrition“, plant-available substances including the reserve pools at the time of soil sampling are described and assessed. The mineralization potential of C, N, P and S is also assessed and evaluated.
In this evaluation, the substances are declared in kg/ha, not in mg/kg (taking into consideration the soil skeleton). Thereby, a division in content classes is not necessary.
Fertilization recommendations are not provided, but instead the differences of the substance quantities (which are required to achieve a certain crop yield for the declared crop) are compared with the actual plant-available substances in the soil at the moment of sampling. The explicit assessment of the reserve fraction enables to predominantly mobilize substances and fertilize only if it is actually necessary.
