Soil Science


soil scienceSoil science is concerned with the study of soil as a natural resource, and in agricultural applications, this refers to assessing its properties in order to enable plants and crops to flourish.

Information on soil characterisation is a key indication of how an ecosystem works. The properties of soil horizons must be known in order for an accurate prediction to be made on how fast water will take to move through them (permeability).

This section comprises a wide range of quality soil analysis equipment including soil moisture sensors and meters, dial gauge tensiometers, soil drying ovens, soil analysis test kits, pH and conductivity digital meters.
