Included below are some of the soil health assessment services available at this time in the US and Canada. These are qualitative tests based on indicators that may or may not be relevant to your particular situation. Standard soil lab tests do provide some information that is relevant to soil quality and soil health such as soil organic matter, pH, salinity and texture. Most of these lab tests go beyond those basic analyses to look at organic matter fractions and estimates for biological activity (for example, Solvita CO2 burst). ARECA is not advocating any particular lab or testing procedure but will be evaluating soil health testing approaches on selected sites over the next few years.
