Agronomic exploration of soils
The selected organisation: Valsts augu aizsardzības dienests
Short description:
Every farmer is interested in obtaining high and high quality harvests. In order to achieve this objective, correct, economically and agronomically justified fertilising needs to be carried out, which cannot be provided without knowledge of agronomic soil performance. Information on agrochemical indicators can be obtained by applying fields for the agronomic exploration of soils.
The agronomic exploration of soils shall include:
• professional soil sampling according to a prepared plan;
• analysis of soil samples in an accredited laboratory;
• computerised processing and assessment of the results of agrochemical soil tests;
• digital maps for soil agro-chemical research and preparation of agro-chemical research materials.
In soil agro-chemical research materials, information on the agronomic performance of soil is presented in the tables as well as in the form of a agronomic survey map. Consequently, the use of soil agrochemical research materials is very extensive, both for the planning of fertilisers and for the calculation of kayaking standards, etc.
Soil agro-chemical research materials shall also include general recommendations for soil remediation measures, if necessary, as well as an assessment of the level of agro-chemical enrichment of the soil. In assessing this information, the farmer may plan appropriate soil remediation measures in the near or distant future.
The State Plant Protection Service shall:
• develop a soil sampling plan;
• take soil samples according to the plan;
• perform an analysis of soil samples in the laboratory;
• carry out computerised processing of the results of agrochemical soil tests and prepare an assessment;
• prepare a digital map of soil agrochemical research and develop agro-chemical research materials.
