Soil is a fundamental resource for the agricultural economy. It stores nutrients essential for healthy crop growth, regulates water drainage and flow, and functions as an anchor for vegetation.

At ChemCentre, we have proven expertise in soil testing, analysis and research. For over two decades, ChemCentre has taken a lead role in analysing agricultural soils and researching the benefits of a wide variety of soil amendments to improve soil quality, including fertiliser uptake.

We offer a diverse range of analysis including:

  • Nutrients (NPK)
  • Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC)
  • Phosphorus Retention Capacity (PRI) to gauge soil’s capacity to store phosphorus
  • Mehlich 3 extraction to determine plant available minerals (metals) and indicate mineral deficiencies
  • and more.

Additionally, our wide array of Environmental Soil Services may be of interest to you.

As an independent authority, we are uniquely positioned to investigate the impact of soil amendments.

Our services are flexible and scalable. Moreover, many of our methods are NATA accredited.

We will advise on sampling methodologies to meet your unique soil testing requirements.
