Soil Sampling

The most important factor in every soil amendment management program is proper collection of soil samples. Beneficial results of a soil test depend on a good sample. The soil sample represents the area which it is taken from. A purpose serving sample is taken at the right time and following correct procedures. Tools used for sampling, area sampled, depth and uniformity of the sample influence the quality of the sample.

To give accurate results, analysis of the soil sample must be done within 24hours of extraction. Soil samples are used to determine whether soils are acidic, alkaline or have enough balanced plant nutrient levels. This information is used for recommendations on fertilisers or lime applications for optimal plant production and maximum yields. The quality of information received during the analysis relies significantly on the quality of the samples obtained. Soil sampling involves three stages, removal of top surface, collection of top soil then the sub soil. These three steps are repeated at another randomly chosen spot. This is to ensure that soil samples represent the whole area. Soil sampling kits, tools and other accessories that allow you to collect uniform samples in rocky, smooth dry or wet conditions are available in retail shops like Checkers Hyper.

Soil sampling and testing is also done in constructions, as soil materials play a vital role in the ultimate success of a project. Soil sampling therefore enables engineers to make informed construction decisions.
