Soils / Earths

Soils / Earths (currently only on request)

Soils/Earths are composed of different materials. They are used in horticulture (e.g. planting soil, compost soil) and agriculture (e.g. soils for flowerbeds, shrubs, bushes, trees).

Analytics

Because of the similar requirements Soils/Earths have to meet, the analytics are corresponding to the analytics of soils.

Sampling

A representative composite sample should be taken. If it is necessary to assess the samples regarding legal requirements, it is mandatory that certified service providers take the sample.

Composts

Composts (currently only on request)

Composts are as diverse as their input materials and their production methods. Integrated in agricultural production, composts can initiate a variety of beneficial processes. On the other hand, poor compost qualities can also import potentially toxic substances into soils.
