Soil Testing: Know Your Soil, USe The Right Inputs
“Soil is gold” the saying goes. To farmers, that saying is as true as the sun is bright. However, due to poor soil management practices, that “gold” has been gradually degraded. Farmers have sought to regain the soil fertility by applying fertilizers, however, the results have been mixed. This is because fertilizer application without knowing the exact soil properties and composition is a hit and miss.
Soil testing comes in to save the day by enabling farmers to know the exact properties and composition of their soils.
At Akorion, we take soil testing a step further by distilling the complex soil analytics into easy-to-follow recommendations about which crops to grow, which agro-inputs to use and how to rotate the crops. These recommendations are then disseminated to the farmers through the village agents who serve them.
Armed with this knowledge, farmers are able to grow the right crops in the right soils, use the right fertilizer and as a result boost their yields and income.
