What's in a Soil Analysis?

All greenkeepers will have a soil analysis carried out, but do you know what it all means? This half day workshop examines the various types of soils that fine turf grow in and how the soil type impacts on nutrient availability. Examining what the essential nutrients are and what form the nutrients need to be in for optimum plant availability.

Discover the correct way to take a soil sample and what key components greenkeepers should be aware of when reading a soil analysis. Finally the workshop will focus on how these key components and nutrients will affect plant growth and how often the soil should be tested.

Learning Outcomes:

• Basic soil texture and structure and how these affect CEC and nutrient availability in the soil

• Essential nutrients and their effects on the plant

• How the plant takes up nutrients and available forms

• How to take a soil sample

• How to read a soil analysis and what key components you are looking for

• How will the nutrient affect the plant and how regularly should an analysis be done
