Irrigation Water Analysis
Depending on the quality of your water source, your water may be more or less suitable for the crop you are irrigating. By knowing what is in your water, you can adjust your other inputs accordingly.
Continuous use of a poor quality water source may have detrimental effects on plant and soil structure. We recommend water testing in conjunction with soil and plant (either sap or dry tissue) testing to help you to obtain a complete picture of the plant, soil and water relationship.
This is particularly important when you are working new land, using a new water source, changing crops or changing key farm management practices.
Hydroponic Drip & Drain Testing
Hortus Analytical Services can help you to keep your hydroponic system’s nutrient solution properly balanced with our customised Drip and Drain testing.
Regular testing of your solution keeps your hydroponic system balance and in turn, ensures maximum yield from your plants. Our agronomists can review your test results and provide recommendations for adjustments to your solution to optimise your results.
We recommend setting up a regular testing schedule with us. You can also save by prepaying for your scheduled tests on a monthly or quarterly basis.
In between nutrient testing, you will want to continuously monitor your pH level and Electrical Conductivity. We supply reliable pH testers, calibrated in our laboratory, and EC meters.
