Fera has established the Soil Health Unit to improve understanding of soil management and its effects on crop health and threat control. Our work involves investigating the interactions between soil condition, crops, water and biotic stress – and the environmental factors that influence them.
If you are unsure what kind of tests you need, we can help you diagnose your crop using our plant diagnosis techniques.
