Laverstoke Park Laboratories is pleased to announce that we are now in partnership with Lancrop Laboratories in York, who have nearly 30 years’ experience in the production of analytical chemistry data from many different materials. Specialising in the agricultural, environmental, horticultural and amenity sectors soils, plant tissue, organic materials and fertilisers, Lancrop supplies chemistry testing services to a huge range of customers. They approached Laverstoke as they recognise attitudes are changing, and people are more than ever looking to include soil biology into their land management strategies. Therefore, both companies have entered into a joint venture to supply high quality soil biology and chemistry testing to both customer bases to ensure the best advice is given to agronomists, farmers, land managers and the general public.

Critical to a sustainable intensification of your crops whilst reducing inputs involves understanding the life in your soil. Sustainable farming relies on an understanding that the soil is a living organism and as a result, this living system must be fed and treated just as any other animal or crop. Conventional practices can be adjusted step by step in order to make way for a flourishing and ever-increasing soil biological population that will not only help your plants, but will help maintain a high quality soil.
