Interpretation of Soil Analyses Data Part 2

This course will enable students to evaluate and interpret the analytical data in order to quantify the current productivity status of the soil:
– To identify soil chemical factors that will reduce plant production.
– To assess corrective measures in terms of practicalities, cost and timing.
– To prepare fertilisation recommendations to optimise crop production.

8 students enrolled

In this course participants will learn to:

  • Distinguish between the various aspects when conducting a soil analysis.
  • Interpret the current status of the soil in terms of optimal pH.
  • Enable you to evaluate and interpret the soil analysis results for resistance and electrical conductivity.
  • Make appropriate fertilisation recommendations to maintain and/or correct the phosphorus status of the soil in the most economical way.
  • Enable you to evaluate and interpret the soil analysis results for cations.
  • Prepare appropriate recommendations to manage the acid level of the soil.
  • Interpret the soil analyses results for sulfur in terms of additions to optimise plant production.
  • Enable you to evaluate and interpret the soil analysis results for essential micro nutrient elements.
  • Interpret the soil analyses results for organic matter in terms of additions to optimise plant production.
  • Put these soil properties as reported in the analytical report in perspective in terms of plant production and soil quality and fertilisation.
  • Calculate the nitrogen requirements to optimise plant production.
