Soil Testing

CRAL knows soil. Our accredited and detailed analysis of your soil sample forms the basis for soil fertility programs tailored specifically to your production targets.

Plant Testing

By analysing plant health and the level of nutrients a plant is able to uptake through the roots and leaves with a highly cost-effective monitoring tool for maintaining plant health and maximising production.
