1. Soil

Soil fertility and the availability of nutrients to plants are paramount factors that are considered in agriculture. Analysis of soil aids in assessing these aspects for the basis of appropriate land management practices that will optimize and make farming cost-effective and environment-friendly.

Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P), and Potassium (K) are major nutrients in the soil while pH affects the availability of these nutrients to the plants. Knowing the accurate values of these through soil analysis will help you know the appropriate quantity of land and avoid excessive use of fertilizers and supplements. Lastly, soil analysis can detect harmful contaminants in the soil that could be absorbed by plants that are then consumed by animals and humans.

2. Water and Wastewater

Water is monitored regularly by the government, mainly the Department of Health and Department of Environment and Natural Resources due to the presence of bacteria such as E. coli and toxic contaminants that could be detrimental to our health. Therefore, monitoring and assessing the quality and availability within the vicinity is significant.

Industrial wastewater, when not treated and managed correctly, could be harmful to the environment mainly because of the traces of chemicals and pollutants that it contains. However, if this is treated and recycled properly, it could be a solution to the scarcity of potable water. This process could be supported with the laboratory analysis.

3. Feed and Feedstuff

The growth rate and health of animals are very much dependent on their diet and nutrition. As part of profitable and sustainable farming, the proper formulation of feed and feedstuff is important and this is supported through laboratory analytical testing. Different health risks such as toxins, allergens, and hazardous chemicals can also be prevented from entering the food chain through detection in the laboratory.

4. Food

The quality and safety of food are reliant on the laboratory testing process. Testing provides information such as the composition, nutritional value, shelf life, and possible allergens of food. It also provides information that can serve as a basis for the research and development of new products in the market.
