A&L Canada Labs Introduces New Soil Health Tests
Phase 1

The “Living Soil” is a term you may have heard recently to describe the growing need to look at soil, not as dirt, but as living and thriving with organisms, micro organisms, nutrients, and complex networks of interdependencies.

To help growers gain an inside look into their soils and make better decisions, A&L Canada Labs has recently introduced a new suite of “Soil Health Tests”.

This first phase of the “Soil Health Tests” will provide analysis that addresses the chemical, biological and physical components that impact Soil Health.

Followed later this Spring by Phase 2 of the Soil Health Tests which will identify what functions the microorganisms express to improve plant growth and productivity.
