Soil Testing Laboratory Services

Civilab offers a wide range of agricultural soil testing options for many crops.

Soil analysis is important to optimise production while efficiently managing your resources. Regular soil testing enables the early detection of harmful soil conditions such as acidity and salinity build-up, nutrient imbalances and overloads, and the depletion of organic matter. It is thus a cornerstone of sustainable farming.


A full range of testing is offered in Soils, aggregate, concrete, asphalt and geotechnical testing. Field investigations and site labs can be arranged and a full range of services are available.

Services are specially tailored to meet client needs. They include structuring of testing programmes to meet particular design requirements, exploration of suitable building materials, laboratory- and field-testing, and technical supervision on construction sites. Resolving problems in collaboration with the client is an important aspect of the laboratory's activities.

What is soil laboratory testing?

Soil testing involves collecting soil samples, preparing them for testing, chemical or physical analysis, interpreting the test results, and finally making fertilizer and lime recommendations for crops.
