Lime, Dolomite and Gypsum Testing Services in Victoria

Our Soil Amendment Testing service analyses your lime, dolomite, and gypsum samples to assess their mineral content against desired levels. We specifically test for calcium, magnesium, and sulphur content in your lime, dolomite, or gypsum samples. For gypsum samples, we calculate the percentage purity based on sulphur content. This helps you determine the quality of your soil amendments and the optimal application rate.

Given the significant variation in quality and pricing across the agricultural inputs sector, our Soil Amendment Testing offers a quick and cost-effective way to ensure you’re choosing the right products.
