Soil Sampling

Envirofield Ltd are one of the UK’s leading soil sampling companies to offer Soil Mineral Nitrogen (SMN) sampling nationwide.

Samples are taken using the Envirocorer Spiker 1000 an efficient and robust machine which was developed and designed by Envirofield. With 5 machines currently in operation.

Sampling is offered between January and March. Multiple cores are taken across the target area in a consistent and representative manner to reduce any variability. Cores can be taken from 20 to 90cm depth. Sampling to 90cm is a recommendation of RB209 due to high or uncertain amounts of Nitrogen which can potentially be present. It is also vital in NVZ areas to follow the Codes of Good Agricultural Practice for Air, Soil and Water whilst operating in accordance with RB209.

Envirofield Ltd have rigorous sampling and sample storage protocols which are in line with industry requirements and laboratory standards.

We work closely with Hill Court Farm Research and NRM Laboratories to ensure accurate and a rapid turn around time of samples. Ring tests ensure consistency of results.

Envirofield Ltd are pleased to announce they will be working alongside CF Fertilisers to help deliver their N-Min fertiliser recommendation service. Where required, Envirofield will take soil samples from requested fields, so crop nitrogen requirements can be calculated for farms thus delivering tailored fertiliser requirements.

Using the Envirocorer Spiker 1000 samplers to take the samples enhances the service by providing more representative sampling of fields than that achieved by hand sampling and ensuring maximum efficiency with minimal impact on soil profile.

Testimonials

“We have used Envirofield for a few years now, they provide an efficient and friendly service.

The SMN results are reliable and enable us to manage seasonal variation, making accurate estimates of crop requirements without the guesswork. The ability to identify the unexpected allows crop managers to produce consistent results.

Overall we find that cost savings will at least cover the cost of sampling, environmental benefits are less tangible but of greater value in the longer term.”
