Soil Mineral Balancing

What is it?

 

Soil mineral balancing is a strategy of building soil mineral reserves while ensuring the optimum mineral availability.  It involves sending a sample of your soil for laboratory analysis to reveal the mineral composition and content.  This reveals if there’s something big or small holding your soil back from optimum fertility and your plants back from peak nutrition and flavour.

The raw data from a soil lab is in a technical format and to make use of the results you'll require the assistance of a soil analyst, like myself.  A soil analyst is someone who's trained to interpret the data and provide a detailed recommendation of what your soil needs and how to fast track improving it.  

 

Working with me, I provide a detailed prescription for the exact minerals your soil needs to achieve optimum fertility, and because it will be exactly what your soil needs, you'll see radical improvement in no time!

This is the art of Soil Mineral Balancing.

some soils have too much of certain types &

both scenarios can cause big problems!"

Why?

Simply put, you set yourself up for success

 

  • Grow food that tastes better 

  • Improve soil & crop health 

  • Unlock existing mineral reserves of your soil 

  • Less weeds and weeding

  • Minimise insect pest and disease issues

  • Faster growing, higher yields

  • Avoid wasting money on unnecessary fertilisers

How often?

One analysis and mineral prescription is accurate for one year.  

 

Even one single analysis can be extremely useful to reveal what's going on, chemically speaking.  All Organic, the minerals prescribed will suit any Organic certification system.  

 

A mineral balancing program runs for 1 year.  It involves repeat applications of the prescribed minerals to achieve the optimum possible results.  Smaller, repeat applications enables faster results than single, annual applications. 

What's the Process?

  1. Purchase a soil analysis package below.

  2. You'll receive instructions from us (via email) on how to take the soil sample and submit it to the lab, plus a digital copy of the form to submit with your soil sample.

  3. Post your sample and submission form to the lab.

  4. The lab send the results to us for our analysis.

  5. We'll interpret the results and email you the full report including recommendations and a quote for the minerals you require.

  6. You can source the minerals yourself or proceed with the ready-made quote

  7.  You apply the minerals as prescribed &      

       delight in the results
