Soil Analysis Report – Structure

Below, you can see the structure of our soil analysis report. It starts with a statement of the plants you would like to grow, it lists the main beneficial and detrimental organisms present in the soil, and it ends with an assessment of whether the soil biology is suitable for growing the desired plants.

Desired Plants

Here, we note what type of plant you would like to grow in this soil, e.g. oats. Depending on the type of plant, we can give recommended minimum and maximum numbers for each of the organism groups.

Beneficial Microorganisms
Fungi and bacteria

– Bacterial biomass

– Actinobacterial biomass

– Fungal biomass

– Ratio Fungal : Bacterial biomass

Beneficial Protozoa

– Flagellates numbers

– Amoebae numbers

– Total Beneficial Protozoa numbers

Beneficial Nematodes

– Bacterial-feeding Nematodes numbers

– Fungal-feeding Nematodes numbers

– Predatory Nematodes numbers

Detrimental Microorganisms
Disease-causing fungi

– Oomycetes biomass

Anaerobic Protozoa

– Ciliates numbers

Detrimental Nematodes

– Root-feeding Nematodes numbers

Additional comments and conclusions

In this section, we will highlight the key findings of the soil analysis. This includes an assessment of whether the soil is suitable for growing the desired plants, and which organism numbers need to be boosted and which ones need to be decreased.
