EarthLine can identify and map soil distribution in order to provide insight into areas that are plantable and not plantable.
The Soil Survey is conducted by dividing the survey area into several blocks where soil samples will be taken at several depths. Chemical analysis, such as soil reaction (pH), organic matter, phosphate content, potassium content, cationic exchange capacity, base and aluminum saturation will be carried out. Physical features such as texture, structure and consistency also will be taken and analyzed. The EarthLine team will take hundreds of soil samples throughout your estate (four samples per soil point) in order to analyze soil characteristics and distribution. Soil samples will be sent to the lab for further analysis. EarthLine's soil expert will review the results for any peculiarities.
