Research & Insights

Can I use water testing reagents for soil testing?

The methods used for colorimetric and photometric involve an extraction process, creating a highly ionic solution.


Do Palintest soil tests compare to the DEFRA/ADAS standard methodologies?

Palintest Soil Test Kits are designed to allow field testing of soil samples which should be comparable to standard laboratory methods.


Methods of expressing soil test results

Palintest soil analysis results are expressed in terms of the nutrient as mg/L of soil. Several other methods of expression are available and this guide explains how results can be converted from one to another.
