What is Healthy Soil?
Soil quality is a measure of the level of four critical nutritional components in soil and its structure. Plants grow better in high-quality soil with the correct nutrient balance. They struggle in lower-quality soils with insufficient nutrients. Not all plants thrive in the same soil. The only way to give your plants the best chance to grow is to determine the correct amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium your plants require and to ensure proper pH of your soil. Here is a list of the optimal nutrient levels for various common plants.
Soil structure refers to the hardness or looseness of your soil. For example, plant roots battle to get through clay soil and prefer well-draining soil. Soil structure can be changed with soil additives, such as peat moss, compost, organic material, and sand.
Why is testing Important?
Farmers test their soil every year, not in one place but a several places in their fields. They know that to achieve the highest crop yield, the plants must have the proper and right amount of nutrients. Home gardeners often overlook this extremely important part of gardening. Tests for the four basics of quality soil should be performed in the soil for every type of vegetable plant. Different vegetable plants require different nutrition parameters. Knowing the correct plant food to use will produce the best outcome each year.
Soil testing is particularly important when planting a new lawn or repairing your existing lawn in the fall. Adding the right nutrients is critical in ensuring that the grass seed you choose has the best chance of succeeding. Test your lawn in different areas to apply the right soil nutrients.
Each test will tell you how to improve your plant’s chances to flourish, develop and thrive. Your yield for garden vegetable plants is completely dependent on the condition of the soil. Fertilizing before testing can cause excessive use of nutrients which can be harmful to your plants in addition to being wasteful.
