Unique soil analyses through N-xt Soil ServicesPublication date: 04-09-2018
As of 2016, N-xt Soil Services offers unique soil analyses in accordance with the official Kinsey-Albrecht method. The soil samples are sent to the US and the raw data of these analyses come back within two weeks. As N-xt Soil Services, due to the training and education it completed in the US, has all the official calculation rules it can provide practical advice to ensure the soil returns to an optimum performance. The starting point is the optimum chemical balance that is responsible for the right structure, following which biology can run its course.
The correct chemical balance provides a new look at soil processes and is not yet emphasised in the Netherlands. In essence it is the construction drawing of your soil. We compare it to the cow shed - the environment (the shed) determines how the cow feels and performs. We may well have the best rations for a cow, but if she does not perform well, it will not be absorbed. It works the same way for soil; we may have an analysis with the highest availability of minerals, but if the plant does not feel well because the environment, i.e. the soil, is not in order, absorption will be inefficient.
Looking from the point of view of the soil rather than the crop is the aim of N-xt Soil Services. Passing on this knowledge and these handles to farmers is essential to future 'sustainable' business operations!
