Soil is the foundation of agriculture.

At Actlabs, we follow OMAFA (Ontario Ministry of Agriculture & Food) as a default for testing standards for soil testing. We also provide optional methods for clients that seek out an testing alternative or might have historical data to compare. Methods include Mehlich 3 which is a universal extraction that eliminates the need for multiple extractions. Both services are offered routinely and provide the client options to customize.

Plant tissue testing is often used in combination with soil testing. Our service offers a all the traditional elements for clients to identify deficiencies. In addition, Actlabs has ICPMS technology that can incorporate low level detection of elements such as Molybduem and Selenium. Rapid turnaround is available for clients that support nutrition programs.
