THE NEED FOR SOIL SAMPLING
Under the England Farming Rules for Water 2018, the results of soil sampling and analysis need to be taken into account when planning fertiliser application.

A soil analysis is more than just a legislative requirement, it is essential for providing the factual information required to build a nutrient programme. Based on the soil results, fertiliser can be formulated for your crop to optimise your potential yields.
Using soil results enables you to adapt your nutrient inputs to maintain soil indices at target levels and to achieve the best yields for your crop.
The interpretation and nutrient prescription should be made by an Origin FACTS Qualified Advisor.
