Physical on-farm assessment

 iFert conducts a physical examination on-farm to gain a clear insight into soil, pasture and animal health. Taking the time to understand the farm history paints a picture of past land use, fertiliser inputs and key animal health or production issues.

iFert is based on the belief that looking at herbage and soil testing results without considering the way in which the pasture is being converted into protein only tells half the story.

The physics and biology of the plant and soil is just as important as the chemistry. Balancing information from all three is of vital importance.

In today’s farming, the physical and biological side of soil science has been neglected. It’s the combination of soil and plant biology, physics and chemistry that makes the difference between productive soil and plain dirt.
