Soil is 90% of farming, if you can maintain and build a healthy soil, most of the problems will go
Laverstoke Park has equipped a fully comprehensive analytical chemistry laboratory. The laboratory has been primarily designed for soil and food analysis with the agricultural community in mind. The services of the laboratory are aimed to provide consultants, farmers, horticulturists, amenity managers and the food industry with reliable, analytical data to make sound decisions on management practices. Laboratory facilities include several high tech mass spectrometers including ICP-MS, LC-MS and GC-MS in addition to traditional analytical instrumentation.

Critical to a successful transition toward boosting crop production and reducing dependency on fertiliser and chemical inputs involves understanding the life in your soil. Biological farming relies on an understanding that the soil is a living organism and as a result, this living system cannot be managed in a conventional way. Conventional practices must be adjusted step by step in order to make way for a flourishing and ever-increasing soil biological population. We can wean you off those chemicals
