Thinking of switching to using OMEX fertilisers? Crops lacking in nutrients? Unexplainable issues or low yield? OMEX offer free soil sampling and analysis to OMEX customers and fields are sampled according to industry standards and analysed by PAAG-member laboratories.

Soil sampling is a vital tool and can in turn earn money by indicating the correct fertiliser analysis required for crops and identifying yield-limiting deficiencies. OMEX supply tailor made fertiliser solutions, using top of the range soil analysis to determine the correct formula for your crops. Ensuring maximum quality and yield from your produce.

A routine soil sample analysis includes phosphate, potash, magnesium and pH.  It is also possible to include boron, sodium, sulphur, copper and zinc analysis.  Soil nitrogen testing is also available from OMEX by prior arrangement. Results are then inputted into the index system developed by Defra, which is used by all laboratories when they report results. In order to show whether a result is near the top or bottom of an index, OMEX report to one decimal place. The soil nutrient status is displayed as colour coded easy-to-interpret horizontal bar graphs.  Results are then available in a number of different formats such as printed copies, emailed files or as data for uploading into farm recording software.

Having 41 years within the agricultural industry OMEX ensures it’s soil sampling is done to the highest of qualities, ensuring that a minimum of 25 cores are taken to provide a truly representative sample of the sampled area. OMEX follows the Defra guidelines for soil sampling, taking the most accurate sample path across the sampling area.

There is no charge for soil sampling from OMEX, unless there is no purchase of fertiliser following the testing.
