Thorough lab analysis is key to steering your soil back to health.
The microbial assessment is our specialty. We use Dr Elaine Inghams' method of direct microscopy to analyze and calculate the biomass of key microbes that indicate your soils current level of health. This allows you to quantify the nutrient cycling capabilities and disease susceptibility of your soil. It is instrumental for farmers looking to find peak performance and efficiency in their living soil. The analysis comes in a simple and easy to understand report. Our bioassays also include a consultation with our team.
The report includes:
Fungi to Bacteria Ratio
Protozoa: Flagellates and Amoeba
Nematodes: Bacterial, Fungal, & Predatory.
Anaerobic indicators: Oomycetes, Ciliates, and Root Feeding Nematodes
We combine the BCSR and SLAN mineral balancing approaches to ensure that your soil has a sufficient level of soluble nutrients while also maintaining the total nutrient pool in your soil. Our mineral balancing programs enhance our microbial strategies. We use only mineral amendments that do not harm microbes. Our mineral recommendations come with a consultation with our team.

We can provide guidance and direction for any cultivation related testing parameter. Some common testing and recommendations we provide are water and heavy metals. We have many years of experience analyzing the cultivation space and can guide you through full facility assessment.
